Moras Thepla Recipe for the Monsoons


Moras thepla, is a classic thepla recipe with Moras Bhaji.


Whole wheat flour-2 1/2 cups


Moras Bhaji- 1 cup, finely chopped leaves

Onion-1, finely chopped

Chilli powder-1-2tsp

ginger garlic paste-1 tsp


Dhana-jeera powder-1tsp


Salt as per requirement


For the dough

  • First, take the finely chopped vegetable in a wok.
  • Add the onion and all other spices.
  • Next, sprinkle in the besan and mix everything thoroughly.
  • Finally, add in the wheat flour and using water little by little knead it into a dough. Give a final knead with some oil. Let it rest for a few minutes.

For the thepla:

  • Divide the dough in small balls.
  • Roll them out into uniform size.  ( Remember, moras bhaji is a succulent so the leaves are thick and hence the theplas are bound to be slightly thick)
  • Dry roast them on a non-stick tava with or without oil is a choice.
  • Serve warm with coriander-mint chutney.
