Ingredients

  • 1 cup jowar flour
  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoon rice flour
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon powdered turmeric

How to make Thalipeeth

  • Step 1. Chop onion & mix with spices. Finely chop the onions and transfer them in a bowl. To the chopped onions, add salt, chilli, cumin and turmeric and keep aside for 4-5 minutes.
  • Step 2. Knead Thalipeeth dough. Now take another bowl and add rice flour and jowar flour in the same. Keep 1 cup water handy as it will be required to knead the dough. Now knead a soft dough by adding water. Make sure that the dough is not very hard.
  • Step 3. Oil you palms & press the dough ball in them. Take a pan which you don’t like much or is very old and add good 3-4 tsp of oil to it. Oil your palms as well. Take a small ball of the dough and press it a little between your palms.
  • Step 4 Press the flattened dough over the pan to shape a roti. Then place the dough on the pan. With the help of your fingers and palm make a roti (try making as round as possible).
  • Step 5. Roast the Thalipeeth on both sides. Make a little hole in the centre and pour a little oil in it. Put the pan on the gas and roast the Thalipeeth. If you like it crisp then make it really flat and burn it a little as well to get a crunch. Flip and roast the other side as well.
  • Step 6. Serve Maharashtrian Thalipeeth hot! Remove Thalipeeth from the pan and have it hot. Serve it with pickle and enjoy!
