Bhajni for thalipeeth recipe - Flour for thalipeeth recipe

bhajani in a plate
Bhajni for thalipeeth recipe - Bhajni 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. Bhajni is a Marathi word.  I have posted bhajni for chakli earlier. But, this bhajni is slightly different than the bhajni 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 or vade from this flour and I'll post this recipe in due course.  My next post will be thalipeeth  with this bhajni.
