Doodhi Thepla (Lauki Paratha)
Thepla is a popular Gujarati Food. Thepla can be made with Methi, Mooli, mixed vegetable etc.
This doodhi thepla also known as lauki thepla, bottle gourd thepla. This can be a tasty, delicious and health breakfast. We normally make thepla with besan and wheat flour, but you can also add jowar or bajra flour which ultimately make the theplas / parathas more healthy.
