BM #116 Day 15 - 

Here is a traditional Rajasthani ghee laden paratha known as Tawa Pudi. I am told that these Tawa Pudis are made for special occasions in many traditional families in Rajasthan.

The main difference between the regular parathas from Delhi/Uttar Pradesh/Punjab and these Tawa Pudis is the shape they are made in. The ghee used to make these Tawa Pudis can be adjusted as needed.

These Tawa Pudis are also used to make Churma Laddu in many families. 

In the picture featuring the Tawa Pudi are Sabz Jaipuri, Boondi-Kakdi Raita and Onion-Tomato salad.

Here are the Flatbreads in the series so far..

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 cup + more for dusting
Salt and Water as needed
Ghee 2 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, salt and water and knead into a soft dough. Cover and set aside for a few minutes.

Divide the dough into 6 equal portions.

Knead each portion and roll into a 4 inch disc. Apply ghee generously and sprinkle dry wheat flour. Fold one end towards to the middle and then the other end towards the middle. Fold the resultant rectangle into a smaller square.

Dust some flour and roll it into a 4 inch square.

Heat a griddle and cook on both sides spreading ghee on both sides until they are golden brown on both sides.

Remove from the griddle and store in an insulated box.

Continue with the rest of the dough. 

Serve with any Sabji and Raitha.

  4. I am loving everything you have plated here. I came across these tawa pudi a few days back and thought the envelope shaped parathas are fun. And I love that raita. In fact I have made a big batch of it and have been eating the cold, refreshing raita for the past two days.

  5. rajani Says:
  6. Lovely thali there, looking at it is making me hungry again now.

  7. Rajasthani Cuisine is ultimate and this platter is so inviting. Tawa Pudi as a flatbread is new to me, however, they also have a sweet named Tawa Pudi, which is available at the Sweet Shops.
