Zucchini and Dudhi (Bottle Gourd) Thepla / Flatbreads

I love to experiments with my rotis. We always make thepla with lauki (bottle gourd) but this time I wanted to add zucchini along with Lauki and make this theplas for my breakfast. Well Made it and kids loved it too. I just changed one thing, instead of adding yogurt in it , I added sour cream in it and it came out so soft and perfect and get praised by my FIL who is very hard to please when it comes to food. But I am glad that this time he appreciate my cooking very much. You can add yogurt in it too , I just wanted to experiment with sour cream so that's the only reason I add it. You can have that with tea or snack or perfect for lunch box too. You know, theplas are the most travel food around the world. Every gujju who travel for long or short distance , Always carry thepla in their basket , reasons are very simple, it has very long shelf life and add pickle, chundo or dry potato curry and you are all set for travel. It's saying that theplas don't need any visa to travel any countries.

Ingredients :

1 cup Whole wheat flour
1/2 cup bajri flour
1//2 cup mixed grated zucchini and bottle gourd
1 tsp. Turmeric powder
1 tbsp. red chili powder
salt to taste
2 tbsp. oil for flour and extra to cook thepla
1 tbsp. sesame seeds


Take a big bowl, add flour in it.
Add grated vegetables in it and add salt, powder masala and oil and knead the dough with little water.
Because both vegetables leaves water so you don't need too much water.
Make small golf sizes balls and keep it aside.
Heat your roti pan or flat non stick
Dip the ball in flour and make a circle thepla.
When pan it hot, put that in pan and when bubbles started to come, turn it over
When other side is also cook, add one tbsp. oil on top of it and turn it over and cook on both sides for a minute till it becomes nice brownish in color.
Make all the theplas and spread it on dish.
