2. Add ginger, garlic, chilli paste. sesame seeds, tuermeric powder, red chillli powder,sugar, asofetoeda and salt.
3. Now add yogurt and start kneading the dough. If you find it hard then add little bit of water in it otherwise just kneed it with yogurt.
4. Roll thepla from the dough with the help of wheat flour for dusting.
5. Heat tava and place thepla on it. Let it cook on one side until you can see little bit of bubble or spot on it.
6. now turn the thepla and apply small amount of oil on cooked side and let it cook for half and minute.
7. Now turn one more time and cook the other side for about half a minute.
8. Serve hot with yogurt or pickle.

This is my way of making healthy thepla.
1. If you don't want to mix the flour then you can just use wheat flour. replace 1/2 -1/2 cups both the flour with wheat flour.
2. If you want to make it gluten free and don't want to use wheat flour at all then replace 1 cup of wheat flour with 1/2 cup bajari and 1/2 cup juwar flour.

Lunch Box Sandwich - Train.

My son is very picky eater. He just wants only pasta for the the lunch every single day. As he is crazy about trains I made train sandwich for him today.

 I use two whole grain bread and made sandwich with peanut butter and grape jelly. Cut it in half lengthwise and arrange it side by side. Cut small cheese square for window and add carrot circles as wheels and "glue" them on the bread with peanut butter and for steam I just cut cucumber in crescent shape.
