A constant travel partner of the locals, these flavoured and sumptuous goodies made of whole wheat flour make you forget about all your weight watching vows. These are usually made and saved for the last day of the tour – as they stay fresh and flavourful at room temperature for about 3-4 days.

The safest state of India to live in – Gujarat is not only known for it’s rich and hearty cuisine, it is also known to be the only natural habitat of lions after Africa, for it’s larger-than-life navratri celebrations, and for the highest number of people eating vegetarian food.
The sweet and salty variation of each delicacy plays with your taste buds and soon enough, you will be a fan of Gujarati sweets and savouries. Thepla is that Gujarati goodie you can not say no to even on a full stomach – such is its lure and appeal. It can be made in any flavours such as asafoetida, cumin, ajwain, and more. For normal day-to-day treats, very finely chopped assortment of vegetables can also be kneaded with the dough to make the preparation richer and healthier. Thepla can range from spicy, very spicy, to plain primarily made from wheat flour. It can also be made using millet aka bajra. The dough needs to be kneaded properly, with the mix of right and authentic spices, and then carefully made into very thin circles which are finally shallow fried in refined oil. Sesame is one of the must-add ingredients in thepla.
This Gujarati staple is savoured by the locals at least once or twice in a week. A local festival – Sattami – which falls just a few days before Janamashtmi in the month of August calls for a thepla feast. The ladies of the household generally make these divine bites on chathi and consume it on Sattami.
