Spicy Multi Grain Pancake or Thalipeeth
Spicy Multi Grain Pancake or Thalipeeth

Thalipeeth, or multi-grain pancakes, are a popular breakfast food in Mumbai. This spicy and flavorful dish is made by mixing a few varieties of flour with vegetables of your choice to make delicious rotis. Certain leafy-vegetable combinations like dill leaves and fenugreek leaves can give these pancakes a unique and memorable taste.

For the purposes of this recipe, I used wheat flour, finger millet flour, jowar flour, gram flour, sesame seeds, salt, chopped dill leaves, fenugreek leaves, chopped onion, turmeric powder, chopped green chilies, oil, curd, and hing powder. Once you get the hang of it, you can try altering the recipe by using different types of vegetables and flours. These rotis are perfect in packed lunches as well.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: 9 pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup finger millet flour
  • 1/3 cup gram flour/chickpea flour
  • 1/4 cup jowar flour/great millet flour
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp hing/asafoetida
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped green chilies
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped dill leaves
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fenugreek leaves
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 2 tbsp (or less) thick curd or yogurt

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Gather all of your ingredients in a mixing bowl. Gently knead them to get a soft and firm dough. There should be no need to add water since the fenugreek leaves and onion give out some water when they are worked.
  2. Add a few drops of water if necessary to knead the dough, then rest it covered for 15 minutes.
  3. After the dough has rested, pinch out a lemon-sized ball and shape it like a patty. Roll it in a dusting of wheat flour to make a thick disk about 6" in diameter.
  4. Heat a pan, sprinkle some oil on it, and place the disc on the surface. Pour few drops of oil on the top and on the edges. Flip it when the top part develops air bubbles.
  5. Add a few drops of oil to the other side and cook until both sides develop some golden brown spots.
  6. Remove your pancake and place it on a serving plate. Repeat this process to make additional pancakes/rotis.
  7. Serve hot with tomato chutney sauce or with any other tangy chutney/dip. Enjoy eating these aromatic rotis!
