This popular maharashtrian snack is easy to make provided you have the basic flour ready. Out here in Mumbai or most of Maharashtra and nearby places, it is easier to find the popular bhajani (roasted flour mixture) to make thalipeeth. Literally translating this means, Dish dough(thali –peeth). It is so named because I think it is spread with hands on a dish and then roasted on a griddle.
2 cups Bhajani
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 bunch finely chopped coriander
2-3 green chillies
salt to taste
Oil to cook Fresh butter/ ghee to serve
1) Make a soft pliable batter mixing all ingredients except the oil.
2) On a flat surface, place a plastic sheet and wet it using some water.
3) Now make a ball using the dough and start flattening it on the plastic sheet to form a round roti. This is a thalipeeth.
4) Heat a griddle/ tawa and put I tspn oil and let it heat.
5) Now punch some holes in the rolled out thalipeeth and gently transfer it from the sheet to the griddle.
6) Let it cook well on one side. Drop some oil in the punctured holes. Now flip it around and let it cook on the other side.
7) Serve hot with curd or thecha (recipe due)
