Bhajniche Thalipeeth

Served with curd and peanut chutney Thalipeeth is a savory pancake and a popular Maharashtrian breakfast item. We, many a times, have it for dinner as well. It is a very nutritious dish with a variety of grain cereals and pulses ground together. Bhajni (meaning: roasted) is the flour used to make thalipeeth. The recipe for bhajni is given below. Once the bhajni is ready, it can be stored for months together, preferably in an air-tight container to retain its fragrant aroma. Thalipeeth Bhajni Bajri- 750 gms Jowar- 750 gm Rice-500 gms Wheat-500 gms Chana dal-500gms Dhania seeds – 250 gms Whole udid black dal (with skin) – 250 gms Soya beans seeds– 250 gms Dry roast all the items individually on a slow flame and grind it together to a fine powder. Store it in a cool, dark place. I sometimes keep it in the freezer by sealing it in a Ziploc. It stays good for around 4-6 months in the freezer. Thalipeeth Recipe: Makes 4-6 thalipeeths of medium size
