Hello Everyone,


Navratri special upvas ka Rajgira Thalipeeth. There are very few recipes that are perfect for fasting days, and one among them is Rajgira Thalipeeth. Rajgira Paratha or Thalipeeth is one of healthy, easy and gluten-free rajgira flour recipe suitable for fasting / upvas. Normally for singhara, kuttu, and rajgira paratha, puri is made with potato using as a binding agent, so here I have used potato, so this is a great recipe for upvas as most of the upvas recipes revolve around the potato. You can even make this for tiffin box if you are working during upvaas.
         This Rajgira Thalipeeth is a low-calorie recipe as it's not fried as like puri. The recipe is very simple, delightful and needs few ingredients and 10 minutes of your time.
        A vegetarian, vegan and also gluten free and high protein, low-calorie Rajgira Thalipeeth / Paratha are made from healthy and nutritious rajgira flour dough along with the potato. We can say it as  Farali Paratha / upvas ka Paratha and makes for perfect food to take you through the long hours of upvass/fasting especially during work days.

    salt, coriander leaves,and mix well with hand. Now start adding water in small quantity and make a dough, be careful with water, add less. Make soft dough.
To Make Paratha or Thalipeeth :
  1. Divide the dough into equal portion, grease hand with oil Place wet plastic bag or parchment paper on floor. Take 1 ball from dough and spread
    dough on the plastic or parchment paper to form a Thalipeeth you can use rolling pin to roll paratha. If dough sticks to your fingers, just add oil over paratha and spread dough in circular shape.
  2. Or and roll one portion of dough into ball and flatten it, now just this with rajgira atta and roll gently into paratha, it will be thicker than roti and do this gently or avoid paratha from breaking, keep adding dry flour as required.
To Cook Paratha / Thalipeeth :
  1. Heat a tava  and place rolled paratha, cook in medium heat for a min or until light brown patches starts to appear. Flip the paratha and apply oil or ghee, turn again and apply oil/ghee on another side, cook for another minute or until both sides gets cooked well. Repeat for rest of dough.
  2. Here, tasty, healthy and gluten free Rajgira Thalipeeth or Paratha is ready to serve. Serve hot or warm with curd, aloo sabzi, chutney, or anything of your falahari choice. Enjoy!!!
My Take :
  • You can avoid ginger if you don't eat.
  • Take care while rolling, add oil well and be gentle, don't apply too much pressure.
  • You can add grated carrots too if you like.
