Cooking Directions:

  1. Mix all the above mentioned quantities of flours in a dry pan and roast the flour mixture for about 2 to 3 minutes and then cool it.
  2. Now add 2 tablespoons of oil, dry spices, grated coconut, salt, sugar and fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves and mix well. Adding lukewarm water slowly to the mixture, knead the mixture into a dough. Cover the dough and leave it idle for 15 minutes.
  3. Take a small ball of dough and pat it into a flat-rounded chapati like shape. 
  4. Place the flat-rounded chapati like thalipeeth on a hot oil greased griddle (tawa).
  5. If interested, press some onion rings and green chillies on to the top of the thalipeeth.
  6. Add drops of oil to the edges of the thalipeeth.
  7. Cover the thalipeeth with a plate and leave it on a low flame to be cooked for a minute. 
  8. Apply drops of oil on the upper side of the thalipeeth and turn it over. 
  9. Repeat the steps 6, 7 & 8 until the thalipeeth turns golden brown on both sides.
The healthy and tasty Thalipeeth is ready. Place little butter on it before serving. It can be served hot with raitha or green chutney. Sauce is also a good option.
