A perfect snack is the best bridge between Day and Night. This is our Maharashtra’s answer to all the multi-grain breads of the world – Thalipeeth.
It’s very common for us to store the mix in a jar. The Jar of Good Health. Each time we’re in need of an instant snack, we take out some and prepare the dough. A mix of daals, wheat, rice, coriander, onion, carom seeds and basic spices. This dish is meant to mesmerise.
And who is the SRK of this dish? Loni. My Aaji (grandmother) used to swear by this combination and I exactly know why. Loni has its magical way of calming your gut in this heat and Thalipeeth ensures you’re having a good treat!
Thank you, Mumma for gifting these beautiful dishes to me. And Yes, I might just ask for it again (sooner than you think)
Thalipeeth khaa, mast rahaa!
