On a typical weekday it's a very difficult routine. That too with a toddler in her terrible two's who keeps on falling ill since she went to the day care. The day never ends for me. But still I have to manage for good.
I always wanted to cook something easy after coming back home. My hubby gifted me a food processor for my birthday. That is the best gift I ever got for my kitchen. I am totally in love with my food processor. It not only cuts and chops, but does so much more. From kneading atta ( flour) to making juice to whipping cream to churning buttermilk. I even made butter this weekend using my food processor.
Since the day this food processor came home, I can save a little bit of time and energy.
Last week I thought of trying thalipeeth. I thought that this might take such a long time. But my food processor made things very easy for me. Thanks to my hubby dear.
Thalipeeth is a combination of flours put and served in a thali meaning plate and peeth meaning flour. This is a typical Maharashtrian dish. I have used only 2 types of flours. But you can even add rice flour, ragi flour or any other type of flour and make a proper batter along with other added veges.
6 tablespoon besan / gram flour
6 tablespoon atta / wheat flour
1 bunch fresh coriander leaves
1 tsp chilly powder
2 tsp turmeric powder
2 tsp cumin powder
2-3 tablespoon grated coconut (Optional)
Oil for frying
1/2 tablespoon salt or as per taste
In the food processor, chop the tomatoes and onions fine.
Wash the coriander leaves and chop them fine.
To the same add both the flour's.
Add salt to this and the rest of the ingredients.
Add 1/2- 1 cup water and make a thick batter, after replacing the chopper to atta blade.
Once this is done, heat the tawa / griddle. Spread 1 tablespoon oil and let it heat for sometime. On this, put 1 big spoonful of batter.
Spread this uniformly using your finger tips.
Keep it covered for 10 Min's on low flame.
After 10 Min's, turn to other side and let it cook for another 5-10 Min's.
Serve hot with chutney of your choice.
We had it plain.
Note: I did not receive any compensation from Kenstar for reviewing this food processor.
