How to Cook Theplas
- Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl (whole wheat flour, yoghurt, turmeric powder red chili powder and salt). Mix well then add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil and knead it into a soft and smooth dough adding water only if required. Set aside for 5 to 7 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 12 to 14 equal portions, dust with whole wheat flour and roll out as thin as possible, dusting with more flour to help you along. Rotate as you roll to obtain an even thickness, ending up with circles of dough about 5" (12.5cm) across.
- Heat a griddle and spread a little additional oil in a circle and cook each Theplas until they turn golden brown on both the sides. Serve them with a spicy curry or on their own as a snack, hot with butter or fresh yoghurt.
GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Theplas can be stored in an air tight container for up to a week without any problem.
