Thalipeeth is a Maharashtrian cuisine. Here is the recipe of rava-cucumber thalipeeth made from few simple ingredients. It is not only simple but also healthy and tasty. Thalipeeth is a flat bread/roti made from wheat flour with besan flour or jowar flour or ragi flour.
I got this recipe from here. In original recipe 5 holes are made on the thalipeeth immediately after patting the thalipeeth on the tawa. But I didn’t do like that. The holes should be made for even cooking. I’am hearing this dish for the first time. It was different and tasted too good.
The step by step pictorial procedure of this recipe is as follows. It goes well with red chili chutney, coconut chutney or with plain curd. It tasted well even plain also. It is a perfect breakfast or a tea time snack.
- Rava/sooji/semolina – 1 cup
- Cucumber(medium sized) – 2
- Green chili – 3
- Yogurt/curd – 3 tbsp
- Coriander leaves – (5-6) sprigs
- Ghee or oil – As needed
- Salt – As per the taste required
- In a mixing bowl, add rava.
- Add peeled and grated cucumber to it.
- Next, add curd.
- Now, add finely chopped green chilies.
- Add chopped coriander leaves.
- Finally, add salt to it.
- Mix it well and bring all the ingredients. Add water only if required. The cucumber will also release some water as it mixes, so add water cautiously so that the dough doesn’t lose stiffness. I didn’t require any water. Close the bowl with a lid and set it aside for 15-20 minutes.
- Grease tawa with some ghee.
- Take a good amount of mixture.
- Place it on the greased tawa and pat it to make a thin circle with fingers.
- Drizzle few drops of ghee over it.
- Cover and cook till the underside is cooked well and turn light brown.
- Flip the thalipeeth and cook for a minute or till done, on low heat.
- Repeat this procedure for the remaining mixture and serve rava cucumber thalipeeth hot.
- Adjust the seasoning as per the taste desired.
- Instead of green chili, red chili can also be used.
- Ghee can be replaced by sesame oil.
- The entire process of cooking should be done in low flame for even cooking of the thalipeeth.
- Add water only if required. As I mentioned before, I didn’t use any water as cucumber leaves water.
- Rava-cucumber thalipeeth tastes good when hot.
