A wholesome breakfast, a quick meal or an accompaniment for curries and bhaaji, thalipeeth is a traditional Maharashtrian multigrain roti/flatbread from India. Millet flour is typically used to make the dough. Thalipeeth is best eaten on its own, served with thecha and onions. You could also pair thalipeeth with green moong dal, bharli vangi (baingan), curry chicken, etc.
Sift sorghum flour, pearl millet flour, rice flour, amaranth flour, red millet flour, and whole wheat flour together in a bowl. Add chiles, onion, ginger, ghee, carom, and salt. Mix well and add enough warm water to make a thick dough. Let dough rest to loosen up, about 5 minutes.
Form 4 or 5 balls from the dough, depending on the size thalipeeth desired. Dust a work surface with flour and flatten dough balls using your hand to make a thick flatbread.
Heat a griddle over medium heat. Place thalipeeth in the pan and use wet hands to lightly pat them down. Use the back of a spoon to make a hole in the middle of each thalipeeth to help them cook evenly. Cook until golden on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn thalipeeth over and drizzle melted ghee on top. Cook the second side until browned, 2 to 3 minutes more.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
