She is the ONLY one I know who has the patience to make palm sized theplas for all of us with a bottomless tummy!
The best combination for any theplas is when you take a small bite of a thepla and gulp it down with amazing masala chai. Oh what early morning bliss!
10 - 15 Minutes
24 - 30 Minutes
15 - 20 Parathas
Red Chilli Powder
4, medium, over-ripe
2 - 3 tbsp, powdered
Mix all the dry ingredients in the flour, and mash the bananas in the flour.
Knead the dough using the moisture just from the bananas. DO NOT add any water.
Keep kneading for atleast 5 minutes to make a dough which is a little harder than roti dough.
The dough, once allowed to rest, will become softer, so if the dough is already soft when you are kneading it, add some flour, as required to make it a little harder.
After the dough is done, rub a teaspoon of oil and refrigerate for atleast 1 hour.
Make a lemon sized dough ball, and roll out using as much flour as needed to make a paratha.
Heat a non stick pan, and bake the paratha on both sides using ghee.
Tastes best with yogurt, pickle and OFCOURSE kadak chai!
