bhajani thalipith, Bhajaniche thalipeeth, thalipeethIngredients:
1 cup Thalipith Bhajani
1 cup water
salt to taste
1 tsp red chili powder
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
2 pinch asafoetida
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp oil
1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup Oil for roasting thalipith

1) To make a steam dough, heat 1 cup water, add red chili powder, salt, asafoetida, turmeric, cumin and 1 tbsp oil and stir. Once water starts boiling, turn heat to low. Add Bhajani and stir with spoon cover and let it cook over low heat for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the dough cook over steam.
2) Knead the dough well, once it becomes lukewarm. Use some warm water if needed. Incorporate onion and cilantro while kneading. Let the dough rest for few minutes. Then make 4 to 5 equal balls (tennis ball size).
3) Take a thick plastic paper (approx 2 ft X 1 ft). Fold into half width-wise. Apply little water. Place one dough ball inside and roll to required thickness. If the edges are cracking, adjust with fingers. Thalipith should not be too thick or thin.
4) Heat tawa, add some oil and put rolled thalipith carefully. Cover and cook over medium heat. Cook both sides (atleast 2 to 3 minutes each side)

1) Steam cooking prevents the dough from sticking.
2) You can spread the bhajani dough on tawa with your fingers. But because of dents, sometimes thalipith doesn't get cooked evenly. Rolling is the easy way to cook thalipith evenly.
3) If you don't want to steam the dough, Add all the spices and other ingredient to Bhajani. Knead the dough by adding hot water. Let it rest for sometime and then make thalipith.
