Thalipeeth Bhajani

'Bhajani' which is a flour of mixed roasted pulses and some spices is typically used to make 'Thalipeeths', a famous snack item from Maharashtra, India. This delicious flavored flatbread is traditionally served with a dollop of home-made butter and an accompaniment of either chutney, raita, pickle or any other relish.  This is my mom's recipe of Bhajani.

Ingredients -
1 kg raw rice
1/2 kg bajra
1/2 kg jowar
1/4 kg green gram/ moong
1/4 kg urad dal
1/4 kg chana dal
1/4 kg kulith/ horsegram
100 gms wheat
1/2 cup coriander seeds
1/4 cup cumin seeds

Method -
1. Wash the rice and dry it by spreading the rice on a piece of cloth.
2. In a pan, roast each of the above ingredients separately.
3. Mix everything together and grind it into a fine powder.
