The dough is prepared from a flour called bhajanee. Several flours are mixed together with greens and other spices. Slow roasted in ghee or butter and served with ghee, butter, curd, chutney or mango pickle.

Thalipeeth is an age-old Maharashtrian traditional recipe that is extremely healthy, nutritious and filling. Women back then made Thalipeeth when she had small qualities of various flours.

It is also commonly called Pitla. I was first introduced to Thalipeeth by my Maharashtrian maid in Childhood. One is never enough, you always crave for a second piping hot Pitla on your Thaat(plate).
