Bhajani for thalipeeth recipe - flour for thalipeeth recipe - how to make bhajani for thalipeeth

Bhajani for thalipeeth recipe - Bhajani is nothing but a flour made with roasted rice, green grams, black grams and bengal grams with other essential ingredients such as coriander seeds, cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds. Bhajani is a Marathi word.  I have posted bhajani for chakli earlier. But, this bhajani is slightly different than the bhajani for chakli, as the flour for chakli is ground to fine powder whereas the flour for thalipeeth is coarse. I always store this flour in my pantry. It is very handy and you can prepare thalipeeth quickly either for breakfast or evening tea time snack. You can also make vada / vade from this flour and I'll post this recipe in due course.  My next post will be thalipeeth  with this bhajani.

bhajani in a plate

2 kg rice / 15 cups rice
1/2 kg  green grams / 4 cups moong
1/2 kg  black grams / 4 cups urad
1/2 kg chickpea / 4 cups chana
2 cups coriander seeds
1 heaped cup of cumin seeds / jeera
2 tsp fenugreek seeds / methi
