This is hardly a recipe but then, there is some ingenuity that perhaps only a Gujarati can do. I know, I have read quite a few trolling comments for theplas being used in fusion recipes, but you know what? It works. It works for the quick moments of joy, where you need sustenance, filled with nutrition and bare minimal efforts. Theplas are something that tend to be omnipresent in most gujju-homes, so why not take that advantage? I like thepla or paratha as the vehicle here, as I try to avoid refined flour and yeast when possible. I stuff soft scrambled eggs with lot’s of spices, tomatoes and onions and of course green coriander. A layer of cream cheese and occasionally, chilli sauce spread on the thepla before the eggs go in. Easy, simple, delicious, packed with flavour!
