Tomato Thepla / Easy Side Dish for Chapathi

                               Tomato thepla is flavorsome flatbread that uses a fresh homemade tomato puree and some indian spices. Last week we went for vegetable picking. We picked a variety of veggies like beans, capsicum, cabbage and tomatoes. After few days ago I made our family fav "Tomato Soup". This week I tried this tomato thepla and packed it for my daughter lunch box and she loved it :) :) Try out this simple and easy thepla and serve thepla with Carrot Raita, Cucumber Raita, yogurt or k-chup!!
