Lauki Thepla or Doodhi Thepla is a healthy and delicious flat bread which can be packed in the tiffin boxes or had for breakfast or dinner. These can also be made and carried while travelling. You can serve lauki thepla with curds or pickle or any vegetable of your choice. We loved having it with curds or yogurt.
I have added gram flour in this recipe, you may not add it and add only wheat flour. Remember not to add water as bottle gourd is contains lots of water. Addition of curds makes the thepla soft. I have applied ghee/clarified butter while making the theplas. This keeps them soft till lunch time and hence can be added to the tiffin boxes.
Bottle gourd is rich in iron and vitamin B and C. It also has lots of anti-oxidants which promotes overall health. The high sodium and potassium content in bottle gourd makes it excellent for people with high blood pressure and hypertension. A glass of bottle gourd juice early in the morning, helps in weight loss too.
