Charishma's Own Quick n' Easy Theplas'

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

I made these for dinner tonight. These are "wow"! They're pure vegetarian, quick n' easy, picnic food, breakfast delights, you can also enjoy these for lunch/dinner/as a snack item. I call these "ALL PURPOSE THEPLAS"! I tried these tonight, honestly speaking, for the FIRST time, but, these are so darned good, I can tell you now only that I'm going to have to make more tomorrow.

I had these for breakfast this morning and they really came together very quickly. Despite the fact that they are small they are very filling. I had them topped with chutney. These are pretty spicy, but I love that.
