Thalipeeth / Multigrain Pancake


THE THEME FOR THIS WEEK IS KIDS DELIGHT : TRAVEL FOOD


Todays dish is Thalipeeth.. Its traditional Maharashtrian breakfast dish and my personal favorite also is great for long travels and also extremely healthy and nutritious.

Choosing recipes for Kids Delight was done keeping in mind healthy and nutritious dishes which were tasty and enjoyed by kids

Benefits :

  • It contains nutrients, fiber and essential minerals.
  • Rich source of proteins and carbohydrates.
  • Good for metabolism.
Traditionally, thalipeeth bhajani was always made at homes and so every household had their own version and proportions.
Thalipeeth Bhajani can be made of jowar, whole wheat flour, bajra, besan and rice flour.
The ingredients are dry roasted and then grinded together in powder like consistency.
This mixture can be stored in air tight containers for months.
Nowsdays, thalipeeth bhajani is easily available in any shop or store.
