How to make Maharashtrian Bhajaniche Thalipeeth | Spiced Multigrain Flatbread | खुसखुशीत भाजणीचे थालिपीठ

Hello Foodies, 
          One of my favorite, rustic, colorful, and nutritious delicacies from my back home is Thalipeeth(Maharashtrian Multigrain Flour Flatbread). It is a spicy, flavorsome flat-bread made with flour from different grains and lentils. In this recipe, grains and lentils are roasted and then milled/ground into a combined powder called ‘bhajani’/'multigrain flour.' But if you find it difficult to make your multigrain flour, then you can buy different flours and mix them. 

The flour mix is then flavored with herbs and Indian spices and made into a soft, pliable dough. Then flattened the dough using fingers and cooked it on the hot skillet. Whenever I prepare it, it takes me to my childhood. My Aai(mother) used to prepare this and serve us hot thalipeeth with freshly made butter(लोणी) and matki chi usal/chawli chi usal(उसळ).   

    I have used leftover bhajani/multigrain flour made to make bhajanichi chakli for Diwali faral. You can whip up many nutritious snacks in a jiffy if you have a pre-made stock of this multigrain flour. Apart from making Thalipeeth, this Bhajani can also be used to make snacks like multigrain flour fritters, pooris, baked multigrain crackers, etc. The proportion of the grains may vary from region to region or even from household to household. This recipe includes most whole grains and is easy to make. You may change the amount of some of the ingredients depending on your taste and availability. It is lighter on the stomach and quite filling too.
