Bhajnichi thalipeeth recipe - Multi grain flour thalipeeth

Bhajnichi thalipeeth recipe - This thalipeeth is very special because I have used bajri or pearl millet instead of rice to make the thalipeeth flour. Bajri is low in glycemic index when compared to rice. Thalipeeth is a healthy dish prepared with bhajni, onion, cilantro and chilli mixture. This is a traditional pancake of Maharashtra prepared in every home with their own version. A very tasty, filling, energetic and nutritious dish with all goodness of pearl millet, green gram, chiickpeas and black gram.  This can be served in the morning as a breakfast and in the evening as a tea time snack for any age group. If you have bhajni in your hand, you can prepare this dish very quickly whenever you want to have and serve.

Multigrain flour for thalipeeth - Bhaajani - Atta for thalipeeth

Multigrain flour for thalipeeth - Pearl millet is called as bajri in Marathi, bajra in Hindi, sajje in Kannada.  This flour is prepared with roasted pearl millet, green gram, black gram, brown chickpeas, coriander seeds, cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds. Thalipeeth is a popular pancake in Maharashtra. The method of preparation and the ingredients varies marginally. Thalipeeth is usually served with chutney and yogurt for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Being a wholesome dry dish thalipeeth is very convenient to carry while travelling. This bajri bhajani is similar to the rice bhaajani which I had  posted earlier. Only the difference in this recipe is that I have used bajri instead of rice. The purpose of using bajri is that it is low in calories and contains less carbohydrate when compared to the rice bhajani. The thalipeeth prepared with this bhajani consisting of  pulses like chickpeas, green gram and black gram is very healthy, nutritious and flavourful.
