Ingredients:
·         Lauki / doodhi / bottlegourd  - 1 cup (grated)
·         Wheat / Atta flour                  - 2 cups
·         Sesame seeds                      - 1 tsp
·         Ajwain seeds                        - ½ tsp

·         Amchur pwd                         - ½ tsp
·         Kasoori methi pwd                - ½ tsp
·         Yoghurt                                - 1 tbsp
·         Salt to taste
·         Oil / butter as required
Method:
1.   Wash, chop and peel the skin of Lauki.
2.   Grate Lauki to fine shreds.
3.   Squeeze out the water from it and keep aside. ( don’t throw away the squeezed water. It is highly nutritious and can be used in cooking)
4.   In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour and grated lauki.
5.   To it add sesame seeds, salt, ajwain, turmeric pwd, coriander leaves, red chilly pwd, ginger garlic paste, amchur pwd, kasoori methi pwd, yoghurt and combine well.
6.   Knead it to smooth soft dough by adding 2 tsps of oil. ( no need to add water as lauki itself lets out enough water. If needed little sprinkles of water will be fine)
7.   The dough shouldn’t be watery or too stiff.  The softness should be the same as chapatti dough.
8.   Now divide it to equal sized balls. ( don’t allow the dough to rest, coz the lauzi lets out water on resting and the dough turns sticky)
9.   Take one ball at a time. Dust it with wheat flour and roll it to thin round discs using a rolling pin.
10. Heat the girdle / tawa or pan on medium heat.
11. Once hot, put the rolled thepla on it.
12. Apply ½ tsp of oil or butter on it.
13. Wait for few seconds and flip it to other side.
14. Drizzle oil to the sides.
15. Once it turns golden brown on both sides, remove from heat.
16. Repeat it for all the theplas.
17. Healthy & tasty Lauki Theplas are ready.
18. Serve it hot as a breakfast or dinner.
19. It pairs up excellent with yoghurt, pickle or with any spicy curry.
20. We enjoyed Lauki Thepla with delicious Methi Chole.
