Gajar na Thepla - Carrot Flatbread

As I have mentioned before, my MIL uses pretty much all the vegetables available and turn them into delicious theplas. Today was carrots' turn!:-D

Gajar na Thepla
Carrot Flatbread
1 cup grated, peeled carrots
1 cup wheat flour
2 tbsp jowar /sorghum flour
2 tbsp besan/chickpea flour
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1/4 tsp owa/ajwain/ajmo/carrom seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp coriander-cumin powder
1/2 tsp ginger-green chili paste
salt to taste

1. Combine all the flours and dry ingredients together. Now add carrots, ginger-green chili paste. Adding water as needed, knead into a dough. Cover and set aside for 15 minutes.
2. Roll into thin discs.
3. Roast on a hot griddle/tawa/pan using oil as necessary. Make sure, you get brown spots on the both sides of thepla.

1. Since carrot is sweet there is no need to add any jaggery or sugar in this thepla.
