Jowar Flour Thepla - Sorghum Flour Flatbreads

So when you are on a diet and can't have wheat or Methi (fenugreek leaves) but still wants to eat thepla, what you can do? Take gluten-free flour, mix it with other greens, like coriander leaves, mint leaves, green garlic, ginger, and spices and make it and enjoy it. So make this instead of wheat flour, add jowar flour, bajri flour, add your greens, spices, make the dough and proceed as you do for your normal thepla.

Ingredients : 

1 cup Jowar Flour 
1cup Bajri Flour
1/4 cup Raagi Flour
1/2 cup chopped Coriander and mint leaves
2 tbsp. chopped fresh green garlic chives
1 tbsp grated ginger
3 tbsp white sesame seeds
1 tbsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp cumin and coriander powder
1 tbsp. Red chili powder
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Olive oil/peanut oil/canola oil
Oil as needed for roasting


Take all the flours in a big bowl. add your greens and spices in it and oil in it and knead a soft dough. 

Make 8-10 golf size balls and keep it aside.

Heat up your flat pan. 

Roll one thepla and cook it on one side and then when its bubbly, flip it over and cook on another side, spread one tbsp of oil on it and make it little red in color on both sides and put it on a paper towel with a cooling wrack.

Proceed with rest and enjoy it with green chutney,   Kacha Papaya No Sambharo | Raw Papaya chutney  or tea/ coffee.

  3. These look just divine, I would love to try them. Thank you for taking part in Eat Your Greens, I hope you'll share a recipe in November too!

  4. I absolutely have to make these. I am Kenyan and I really don't know why I have never heard of Thepla. I shall also try a mix of millet and gram flour (chickpeas). I commit to share how that turns out.
