Remove from the flame and allow it to cool completely. Divide the stuffing into 10 equal portions and keep aside.

How to proceed

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead into soft dough using enough water. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions and roll out a portion into a 100 mm. (4″) diameter thick circle, using a little Jowar flour for rolling .Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook it, using a little oil, till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides. Repeat with the remaining portions to make 9 more mini theplas. Spread a portion of the topping evenly over each mini thepla and serve with curd or green chutney
