ThalipeethToday here I am blogging about an extremely healthy and tasty flat bread,a Maharashtra specialty.I got to know about thalipeeth only through internet,I have never see it in any restaurant before.But once I read few recipes,I was totally hooked to it.A thalipeeth is a thick chapathi kind of flat bread made of different varieties of flour like whole wheat,rice,ragi etc.Looks like there is a ready made mixed flour(bhajani) for making thalipeeth but I used my own mixture.It is a bit difficult to roll,we need to spread it with hand on a butter/plastic paper and cook on a tava from both sides till well cooked.Traditionally butter is used for cooking but I cooked it with oil.I have added few veggies to make it a complete meal.Though it requires little patience and practice,absolutely worth trying I say :)Pair it with any spicy pickle/chutney powder or you go with the recipe :)
