People often move to fast-foods, because they assume traditional recipes are time-consuming. Not at all! Every cuisine has a mix of quick, everyday cooking, as well as elaborate recipes. Here is a traditional Maharashtrian recipe to prove our point. With three types of flours, thalipeeth is very nutritious, and also easy to prepare.


Besan 3 Tablespoon ((Bengal gram flour))
Jowar flour 3 Tablespoon ((white millet))

1. Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, mix well and make a thick batter using enough water.

2. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it lightly with oil.

3. Pour a ladleful of the batter on the tava (griddle) and pat it evenly with your fingers to form a 100 mm. (4) diameter circle.
