  • If you are planning to make theplas for your travel, knead the dough entirely in yogurt instead of water.
  • Add a little extra oil while kneading as well as cooking to ensure the theplas remain soft even after reheating.
  • Always cook them on medium heat.
  • You can opt for Kasuri Methi if fresh Methi leaves are not available.
