Tear the leaves off a bunch of fenugreek. You need about half a cup. Wash them well and chop finely. Add this fenugreek to a cup of whole wheat flour alongwith 1 tbsp yogurt, 1 tsp garam masala, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder and 1/2 tsp turmeric. Also add salt to taste and a tbsp of oil. Mix everything well, then add just enough water to make a dough. Knead it for 5-7 minutes and keep aside for at least half an hour (she insists that resting the dough is critical to making theplas).
Pinch a lemon sized ball of dough and roll it out as thin as you can. Place on a heated tawa (gridle) and let cook for a minute. Flip, apply ghee on both sides and cook until crisp and brown.
