Healthy Thalipeeth with Lal Michi Cha Thecha
This Thalipeeth was made by Musi( Aunty) who stays with us. She took care of my mother and now takes care of my Mother in Law. Some how after my mother's death she gave me immense support. I believe she is next to my Ma. Today she made this Healthy Thalipeeth for me. Using curd instead of oil and water while flattening the dough was her idea.
Thalipeeth is a traditional Maharashtrian dish. This dish is made with Jowari, Bajri and some veggies add to the flour... A healthy dish indeed...
1 cup Jowari
1 cup Bajri
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 finely chopped Onion
1/2 cup Spinach chopped
1 medium size Carrot grated
1 cup grated Bottle Gourd

2 tbsp Coriander leaves finely chopped
Rock Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Coriander seed powder
1 tsp Cumin seed powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala powder
1/2 tsp Chilli powder

Take a mixing bowl. Add all the flours, chopped vegetables and spices. Add curd and make a soft dough.
Take a plastic sheet. Add 1/4 tsp of curd on the plastic sheet and spread it.
Take a portion of the dough, make a round ball. Put the dough ball on the plastic sheet.
Add 1/4 tsp curd on the dough.
Flatten the dough very gently by pressing it from all the sides.
Heat the pan. Spray oil on the pan. Slowly left up the rolled dough along with the plastic sheet with one hand and turn the plastic sheet along with the rolled dough on the other hand. Pick the plastic sheet gently.
Put the rolled dough on the pan.
Spray oil and cook from both the sides.
Serve it with Red Mirchi Cha Thecha.
