Green Onion Thepla-Green Onion Flatbread

A simple Thepla using green onions.The nice crunch from the green onion gives your thepla a great dimension of flavor.
Preparation time:40 minutes
Serves:Makes around 6 Theplas

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup finely minced green onions(only the green parts,do not use the white part it becomes strong for the thepla)
2 teaspoons oil
salt to taste

1.Take the flour in a bowl and add the minced green onion and salt in it and mix well.

3.Add 1 teaspoon oil and water little by little until it forms a smooth ball.You will need around 1/3 cup-1/2 cup of water.Knead well and cover and keep aside for 15 minutes.

4.Make balls about the size of a lemon and press gently to a disc.

5.Dust the surface with dry flour and roll the disc into a flat bread.

6.Heat a pan and put the flat bread on it and keep rotating it clockwise or anticlockwise while simultaneously tapping it with a cloth or kitchen towel.Repeat the same on the other side.This ensures that the thepla is equally roasted.Now lightly apply ghee or oil or butter on the top side and flip an roast and repeat on the other side and remove from pan.

Serve with Pudina chutney or any other chutneys or pickles.
The finer you get the green onion grated,the flatter you can roll out your theplas.I used a food processor to grate the carrots.
If you are a pro at making rotis,you can add more green onion an be able to make nice rotis without tearing them.
