Thalipeeth is a spiced and delicious Maharashtrian flatbread which is made with multigrain flours. It makes for a healthy, tasty and nutritious breakfast or snack and is usually served with yogurt or pickle based on your taste and choice. You can also pack them in a lunch box for your kids.
Especially during winter, thalipeeth makes for a healthy and heart-warming food. It is made with 3-4 different flours of your choice. I used jowar flour, wheat flour and besan for this thalipeeth.
Wheat flour which have low glycemic index so it will not shoot up your blood sugar levels which makes it perfect for diabetic people.
Jowar is globally known for its gluten-free and whole-grain goodness. It is a millet which is high in fibre and helps in improving your gut health and also reduces bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol. It is a complex carbohydrate that digests slowly which as a result leads to stable blood sugar levels.
Besan is also high in fibre and folate which is important for rapid growth and development of the body.
Apart from being nutritious, it is also very easy-to-make and takes very less time. It is so full of health and goodness, that you really can go for a second, or even a third one without any guilt.
The dish is wholesome, healthy, and filling for your stomach. Let’s dig into its recipe!
