  • Sabudana ½ cups
    Water about 1 cup
    Boiled potatoes 2 medium
    Water chestnut flour (singhade ka aata) about 1/3 cup
    Roasted peanuts 4 tbsp
    Green chilies 4-5
    Sendha namak/ rock salt 1¼ tsp or to taste
    Chopped coriander leaves 2 tbsp
    Lemon juice 1½ tsp
    Dry Water chestnut flour, to roll the thalipeeth, 2 tbsp
    Ghee/ Oil to cook (about 2-3 tbsp)


  • Method of preparation :

    Clean and wash the sabudana. Soak them in about 1 cup water for 2-3 hours.
    After 2-3 hours sabudana granules will absorb the water and will become soft. If sabudana is still hard Add a little more water and leave it for some time. Drain out the erxtra water of sabudana if it has any.
    Remove the stem of green chilies. Wash and finely chop the green chilies.
    Peel the boiled potatoes and mash them thoroughly.
    Crush/coarsely grind dry roasted peanuts.
    In a bowl take soaked sabudana, mashed potatoes, crushed peanuts, chopped green chilies, chopped coriander leaves, water chestnut flour, and salt. Mix well all the ingredients. Now add lemon juice and mix again. Add a little more chestnut flour if needed to handle the mixture.
    Divide the mixture into 10 portions, and make flat discs as shown in the picture below.
    With the help of dry chestnut flour roll the disc into a 3-4 inch circle.
    Heat a griddle/ shallow frying pan on medium heat. Add a little ghee/oil. Place a rolled thalippeth on the griddle. After a minute turn the side and sprinkle a little ghee and cook it on medium to low heat from both the sides until golden red in color. It takes about 3-4 minutes to cook the thalipeeth from both the side.
    Delicious and healthy Falahari Thalipeeth are ready to serve. Serve with phalahari chutney or plain yogurt/ curds (dahi). You can also serve it with phalahari cucumber/ lauki ka raita.
