Lauki Thepla Recipe | How to make Lauki Thepla (Gujarati Cuisine)

Hi friends, Thank you friends for visiting the website. Today's recipe is Lauki Thepla. Thepla is a Gujarati cuisine recipe. It is made with whole wheat flour mixed with choosen vegetable like Methi or Lauki. Lauki means bottle gourd. I have learned bottle gourd thepla recipe from a friend of mine. I usually avoid making North Indian cuisine. But when I tasted the lauki thepla recipe at my friend's place I liked it very much and I tried it at home also. My people also liked it very much, so from then onwards it became a part in our menu. Though I don't prepare lauki thepla regularly but whenever we feel like having North Indian cuisine I prepare bottle gourd thepla. It can also be a best lunch box recipe which anyone can like it.
Sometimes we (South Indians) get confused between thepla and paratha. After making them so many times I learned that the preparation for them is completely difference. To make thepla we chop or grate the vegetable and combine it with the whole wheat flour to make the dough. But to make parathas we need to have the dough and stuffing seperately. And we can make plain paratas also.
