Rava Thalipeeth

Thalipeeth in any form is one of my favourite snacks! I associate thalipeeth with a quick evening snack.. but ofcourse you can have it anytime of the day! Like I had it for lunch yesterday! :)

Thalipeeth.. whenever I think of thalipeeth I remember my mom making it on saturday evenings or my maid serving them for evening snacks. Mom had trained the maid very well, nothing close to my mom but nevertheless! :) The best was to have them when it was raining.. piping hot!!!!

Nowadays I make a lot of variations of thalipeeths.. packing them for my hubby for his mid evening snack. I will post them as I make them :)

*All approx*
1 cup coarse Rava(sooji)
Water (just enough to cover the rava)
2 green chillies, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tspn ginger, chopped
3-4 curry leaves, chopped
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 pinch sugar
salt to taste
  • Mix all the above and keep aside for about 15 mins for the rava to soak properly. The rava puffs up just a bit.
  • The consistency should be a lil thinner than idli batter. If needed add a lil more water.
  • On a hot griddle, spoon a lil oil and spread the above batter and cover.
  • When it starts sizzling, uncover and let cook for 2-3 mins more or till the bottom is cooked.
  • Turn it over and let it cook further.
  • The more you cook (on medium to low heat), the crisper it will become.
You can eat it as it is or with some butter or ghee!! Yummm...

This really looks yummy & so crispy too. I tried making this once, but it broke off. Maybe I did something wrong somewhere.
