As we are getting close to winter season, we are going to be eating lot of greens. Kale was one green that was introduced to me when I moved to States. To be honest it took me a while to get over the taste of Kale. Once I knew how to cook Kale, I loved it. I often make salads using Kale or make sautéed kale. The Gujarati in me had to use Kale and make Theplas using  it. Everyone in family loved how these Thepla turned out and it was a good way to include Kale in our diet. 

Kale is rich in potassium and Vitamin A, K, B6 and C. It is low in calories and carbs as well. It is also good for diabetic and people with high cholesterol.

I already know how much you all love Thepla, try the Kale version and I am sure you will love it as much.
