Thalipeeth - Multigrain Indian flatbread/ Crepe

We can count Thalipeeth as a pancake.This is very popular in Maharashtra. It is very nutritious by using multiple grains.Thalipeeth can be eaten anytime of the day; for breakfast, lunch, brunch or as a  snack.  This is our latest favourite item in the kitchen.

Ingredients :
Rice flour - 1/2 cup
Bengal gram flour (besan) - 1/2 cup
  • Sorghum flour (Jowar) - 1/2 cup
  • Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
  • Ragi flour - 1/2 cup
  • Pinch of turmeric
  • 1 red onion, chopped finely
  • 1-2 green chillies, chopped thinly
  • Salt to taste and few sprigs of cilantro
  • Water to kned the dough
  • Oil

Mix all the ingredients except oil/ghee and knead it. The dough should be wet enough so that it can be taped by  hands. It should be between liquid and solid consistency.

Keep a clean paper on a flat surface. Now spread some water over it with your hand and then take a small ball of the dough and pat it evenly to make a small thalipeeth.This kind of method ensures that thalipeeth becomes thin and tastes better. Make few wholes in the thalipeeth so that it can cook well.

While spreading the thalipeeth dip your hand in a bowl of water and then again spread the thalipeeth so that the dough becomes wet and spreads easily. Weting the hand ensures that the dough will not stick to your hand.

Hold the lower corners of the paper and lift the paper along with the thalipeeth which sticks to the paper and put it on the tawa with the thalipeeth touching the tawa and paper on top.

Remove the paper slowly.

With a spoon put some oil from the sides and in the holes.  Cover it with some lid. When it will start making sizzling sound, take out the lid and turn it over. Make it crisp and brown from both sides.

Serve the hot thalipeeth with a dollop of butter or ghee on top of it. It tastes wonderful with when eaten along with curds.
