Warning: All these dishes are highly calorific in the nutritional sense. Calorie-consious people should forego reading any further...
Still with me...ok, here we go- I made Seven dishes- Upasache thalipeeth, Upasachi batatyachi bhaji, Sabudanyachi khichdi, Sabudana vada, Cucumber-yoghurt raita, Ratalyacha kees and Ratalyacha god fodi. The recipes follow .....
1-1/2 cup upasachi bhajni (a special flour made specially for fasts-updated 07/28/07 confirmed by my mom-majorly made from sabudana and moraiyo flour and then lesser proprotions of rajgira and water chestnut flour)
1 potato (grated)
4 green chilies chopped
1/2 tsp red chili powder (adjust according to your spice level)
2 tbsp roasted peanut powder (optional- roast the peanuts, remove the skin and grind them to a semi-fine powder)
2 tsp coriander finely chopped
salt to taste
1/3 tsp sugar
1. With little water (you wont need much), mix all the above ingredients and make a firm dough out of it as depicted here (the entire process of making the thalipeeth is same from here on- the only difference being this variation of the thalipeeth can be had on days when you fast).
2. Wet your palms with some oil or water and on a plastic sheet, start patting the small balls of dough into a round and even flat shape. Make a couple of holes in it so that it will help cook the thalipeeth better.
3. Heat a pan and grease it with some oil. Place the thalipeeth in the pan and apply some more oil to the holes and on the sides and cook it on both sides till you see brown spots.
4. Remove and serve with some home-made butter or curd.
3 green chilies -chopped
P.S.- I will be posting the rest of the recipes tomorrow or day after whenever i have a chance... till then enjoy...
