Dhapate - Mixed Flour Flatbread

This dish is one of the authentic Maharashtrian dish prepared using mixed flours which is not only healthy but tasty as well. I came across this dish 5 years back when I first travelled to Solapur in Maharashtra. There this dhapate is served with a special spicy chutney made out of raw peanuts and spices, famously known as Shenga Chutney. 

I was totally in love with this dish since I had it and it was inevitable to try it out. Since then dhapate has been prepared in our house for breakfast or as a meal in itself.

This dhapate goes best with shenga chutney, curry leaves chutney or a plain curd.


Ingredients:
  • 1/2 Cup Jowar Flour (Sorghum Flour)
  • 1/2 Cup Bajara Flour (Millet Flour)
  • 1/2 Cup Wheat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Besan (Gram Flour)
  • 4-5 Green Chilles
  • 4-5 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 2 tbsp Coriander leaves finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp Til (Sesame Seeds)
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to roast 
  • Water to knead the dough
Method:
  • In a bowl add all the above ingredients except oil and water, mix well. Check for seasoning.
  • Now gradually add water and knead the dough. This dough should neither be very hard nor very soft.
  • Take a plastic sheet and apply a teaspoon of oil to it. Take a handful of this dough and pat it over the plastic sheet and spread in circular motion using your fingers and palm.
  • Make a hole in the between, so that the dhapate cooks evenly.
  • Now sprinkle a teaspoon of sesame seeds over the dough and again pat so that the  seeds stick to the mixture.
  • Now on a hot griddle add a teaspoon of oil and place the dhapate and cook from both sides.Drizzle oil around the edges aswell as in the center so that the dhapate cooks evenly from all side. Roast them till brown spot appears on the surface of the dhapate.
  • Tasty and healthy dhapate are ready.
  • Enjoy this dhapate with shenga chutney, curry leaves chutney or a plain curd.
