Divide the dough into small balls. There should be about 10-15.
Sprinkle some wheat flour on the balls and thinly roll out the thepla with a rolling pin. They should be about 6-7 inch circles.
Heat a tawa pan on a high-medium flame, place the thepla on the pan, after a few seconds you will notice small air pockets popping out.
