Thalipeeth, a sumptuous, traditional Maharashtrian snack, is made in a faraal-friendly way in this recipe. We have used a dough of sabudana and mashed potatoes perked up with peanuts, green chillies and other flavour-givers. When flattened and cooked on a tava, you get a crunchy, tasty and filling Sabudana Thalipeeth. Sure to keep you energised on a fasting day, this Sabudana Thalipeeth is also very tasty despite being sattvik in every way. You can also try other faraal recipes like the Rajgira Paneer Paratha or Potato Khichdi .
