Top 5 recipes of the week – Breads you must try.

by Sanjeev Kapoor

Almost any meal is incomplete without a roti, our favorite Indian bread. But there are so many varieties of Indian bread that you can enjoy. So, take a look at these Indian flatbread recipes which you must try – a welcome change from the regular rotis we eat every day.


Theplas are a very important part of Gujarati cuisine. These flatbreads are made with a dough of whole wheat flour, gram flour, fresh methi leaves and spices and pan fried. The best part about theplas is their high shelf life – they are perfect for picnics and as snacks while travelling. They taste particularly good with chunda, but you can have them with any kind of pickle. Check out these delicious Thepla recipes
