Green Spring Onion Dhebra

Green Spring Onion Dhebra | Green Spring Onion Savory Indian Flat Bread | Hari Pyaz ke Theple


Dhebra, Thepla or savory flavored Indian Flat Bread all have one thing in common that they’re absolutely delicious and super simple to make. Green Spring Onion Dhebra also known as Thelpa, it’s a superb breakfast or an afternoon tea time snack.  This dish is a combination of  whole wheat flour, freshly chopped green spring onion, yogurt, sesame seeds, salt, sugar and seasoned with some dry spices all kneaded into a nice soft dough. Then rolled out into a round circle and cooked on a flat fry pan spear with some oil and served with a dollop of makhan (butter).

It’s also a great snack idea for the little ones. My kids enjoy these green spring onion Dhebra with their favorite flavored yogurt.

Dhehra is also known as Thepla or flavored Indian Flat bread. The versatility is countless, Dhebra can be made using many different vegetables, green leafy vegetables, spices and flavors. Their also a great tiffin (lunch box) idea, snack, brunch, picnic or long trip packing. I’ve seen and personally also packed freshly made Dhebra for my long flying trips. They have a longer container life so they really do come handy on the airplane when craving to eat something in the middle of the night. 🙂

imageI had learned to make plain Dhebra at a very young age, my grandmother was the ultimate goddess at making any dish. Dhebra was definitely one of her greatest expertise. As a child I remember that she would always have a special container called “gharmo” in Gujarati, which is stainless steel container that keeps the Indian flat bread warm. This container was always filled right to top, cause everyone would help themselves to her special dhebras whether it breakfast in morning, afternoon snack or a late night bit. That tradition continued on and is still alive. 🙂


The fresh green spring onions also known as scallions used in my recipe were right from my ow garden. This year we’ve planted many different kinds of onions in our garden, but onions do take their time to grow to the full form. So in the meantime, why let the greens go to waste I decided to make fresh dhebras for the family. Green onions are very flavorful and tasty when add to any dish they help enhance the flavor and look.

This is a great go to food and an all time favorite in my house. Dhebra (Thepla) can be made in many different versions. Be sure to check out Methi Palak Thepla which is another great breakfast or snack idea and also great to pack in the lunchbox.
