  3. On the dusted board roll each ball into 6-8 inch in diameter and place on the hot griddle/tawa.
  4. Flip the Thepla once one side is partly cooked and drizzle some oil on this side
  5. Flip the Thepla again and now drizzle some oil on this side too.
  6. Press the Theplas lightly with spatula while cooking and cook evenly till you get golden brown spot in both side.
