Thalipeeth is a savoury multi grain  flat bread which is popular in Maharashtra, India. Authentic Thalipeeth is done by using a special flour made from dry roasting  coriander
seeds,cumin seeds, peanuts ,wheat ,rice. As it is quite time consuming,alternatively  thalipeeth is done by mixing different flours.As many flours and millet are used it becomes very healthy and delicious. Millet is very rich in calcium and iron which is vital for our body.This is a very simple,hearty healthy  and delicious recipe. Give a try and enjoy with plain yogurt and pickle.

Divide the dough into 8 medium size balls .Place a ball on a wet muslin cloth/wax sheet or oil cover flatten the ball and using your hand spread the roti into 3-4 inches diameter of medium thickness.If you find it difficult to spread roti using your hands  wet your hands and spread roti. Alternatively you can use rolling pin.



Heat the tawa / iron griddle drizzle some oil and cook on both sides till brown spots appear on both sides.

My Notes:

  • If you don't have have all the flours,you can eliminate it. Besan/gram flour along with wheat and rice flour you can prepare this but you'll be compromising with taste.
  • You can dry roast cumin seeds,coriander seeds along with peanuts.Crush it using mortar and pestle and add to the flour.
