BM #92 Day 20 -

Starting the last week of this series with the letter T for Thalipeeth. Thalipeeth is a traditional Maharashtrian flatbread with a unique blend of grains.

The recipe calls for 6 kinds of whole grains and legumes. I am able to source them but have no means of milling them. So I asked for alternatives and was told the flours can work well but they need to be dry roasted to get a near close taste of the traditional Bhajaniche Thalipeeth. Bhajaniche means roasted.

The resultant flatbread felt like the Sarvapindi which we make with just rice flour, just that the earthy flavors of jowar and bajra were dominant in this thalipeeth.

Recipe Source Shalaka
Ingredients - 
For the traditional Bhajaniche thalipeeth -
Wheat Grains 1 cup
Rice 1 cup
Jowar 2 cups
Bajra 2 cups
Chana Dal 1/4 cup
Urad Dal 1/4 cup
Coriander seeds 1/4 cup
I used the following  - 
Wheat Flour 1/4 cup
Rice Flour 1/4 cup
Jowar Flour 1/2 cup
Bajra Flour 1/2 cup
Besan 1 Tbsp
Urad Flour 1 Tbsp
Coriander Powder 1 Tbsp
Other Ingredients - 
Salt, Chili Powder, Hing, Turmeric as needed
Onions finely chopped 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves finely chopped 2 Tbsp
Oil 2 tsp + more to shallow fry

Method Of Preparation -

Traditionally all the ingredients for the Bhajani are dry roasted and milled.

Alternatively the flours can be dry roasted and used for the thalipeeth.

In a mixing bowl, add the dry roasted flours, mix in salt, chili powder, hing and turmeric as needed.

Add oil and mix well until it resembles bread crumbs. Add in finely chopped onions and coriander leaves.

Add warm water to knead a soft dough.

Make about 7-8 equal portions of the dough and roll them into thin discs between greased sheets of plastic. The dough can be patted down on a greased sheet to about 4 inches in diameter.

Make a small perforation in the middle of the disc before gently transferring it onto the hot griddle.

Spray oil in the perforation and around the disc, cover and allow it to cook. When the steam starts to sizzle, remove the cover and flip the thalipeeth. Allow it to cook the other side as well.

Remove and continue with the rest of the dough.

Serve warm with just butter, or yogurt or any pickle.

  4. Love these kind of multigrain rotis or dosas in our weekly meal. Such a healthy and definitely a nutritious thalipeeth to give a try without any hesitation.

  5. Bajra and Jowar make rotis quite flavourful. After making dhebra, I have become a great fan of millet based rotis. This thalipeeth looks so delicious and super inviting..

  6. Thalipeeth takes me back to our BM meet when Pradnya gave us packets of the home milled thalipeeth flour .
    Every time I visit Mumbai I make it a point to eat thalipeeth in a authentic restaurant .
    Your thalipeeth has come out so well and it is such a healthy flatbread to indulge in . Dry roasting the flours must have enhanced the flavour , I too should do that with the millet breads .
