Thalipeeth Bhajani Vade

Thalipeeth is a quintessential Maharashtrian delicacy made out of thalipeeth bhajani which is a flour made of various grains and pulses. 

When I am short of time and have to feed more than 3-4 persons, I normally opt for these vades as they can be made in jiffy.

Ingredients: (Serves Approx.2)
  • 1 Bowl Thalipeeth Bhajani
  • 2 tsp Red Chili Powder 
  • 2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds ( Til) 
  • Handful of Coriander Leaves finely chopped (Optional)
  • Salt to taste
  • A pinch of Sugar (Optional)
  • Water for kneading the dough
  • Oil for frying
  • In a mixing bowl add thalipeeth bhajani and rest for the ingredients except water and oil.
  • Mix all the ingredients well and check for seasoning.
  • Now start kneading the dough by adding small amount of water at a time. Knead a stiff dough.
  • Drizzle little oil over the dough. Cover and rest the dough for 30 minutes.
  • After resting the dough, grease a plastic sheet with oil & pat out round vade into 3" diameter.
  • Do not pat the vade very thin, otherwise they will not puff up.
  • Deep fry in hot oil till they are golden brown from both sides.
  • Transfer the vade's onto an absorbent paper to drain excess oil.
  • Thalipeeth Bhajani Vade is ready.
  • Serve with curd or pickle of your choice.       
Tip: You may also add finely chopped onion into the bhajani mixture before kneading the dough.
Note: I have used store bought Thalipeeth Bhajani.
