Bhaat Na Thepla

Bhaat Na Thepla is a Thepla made from leftover cooked rice. Its easy, simple perfect for breakfast or during dinner time. Bhaat na thepla, with curd and pickle is just enough to enjoy a perfect dinner with family.

Leftover Cooked Rice 1 cup
Whole Wheat Flour / Atta 1 cup
Ajwain / Carrom Seeds 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder 1/2 tsp
Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
Coriander - Jeera Powder / Dhana - Jeera Powder 1/2 tsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 1 tbsp

Atta for dusting
Oil for cooking the theplas 

In a bowl, take leftover cooked rice. To it add atta, ajwain, salt, turmeric powder, red chili powder, dhana - jeera powder and oil and nicely pressing the cooked rice, start mixing it well.

Keep on mashing and mixing, until a smooth dough like above is formed.
{Do not use water at any cost. If it is sticking try to just touch oil and make a dough}.

Now divide the dough into equal size balls and keep ready.

Now lets start to roll the theplas....
Take a ball dough, dust some flour on it, and start rolling.
{It will tend to stick as we have used cooked rice, which will leave water by this stage, nothing to worry, just dust some flour, it will work out well}.

Roll it into a small round.
{Too much stretching will break the thepla, so just try to roll as possible only].

Now lets cook the theplas....

Heat a tawa. Once hot, place the rolled thepla and cook. As you see little brown spots on it, flip it to other side and cook. Apply oil{say 1/2 tsp} and cook until small bubbles are seen. Again flip to other side and add oil{say 1/2 tsp} and cook until thepla is cooked both sides.

Do the same for the rest of the balls.

Transfer to a serving plate.

Enjoy with Curd and Pickle.
