Mixed flour Roti (Thalipittu)

This is a healthy breakfast dish with different kind of flours in it. I used to eat it regularly when I was in Belgaum, doing my Bachelors. I loved the taste of it.There is a peculiar way of doing this. They apply water(or oil) to the inside of a big kadai. Then apply a thin coating of the dough. Cook on a low flame. So when it is cooked, it will be in the shape of the kadai. Then break it and serve with coconut chutney.

I used to love the taste. Though I don’t have so much patience to cook it in big kadai, I do it on normal tava.

This version is the one told by my friend from Belgaum whose mother makes thalipittu. So I hope this is the authentic one. It tastes almost same as the one I used to have earlier.

Rice flour 1 cup
Jawar flour 1/2 cup
Wheat flour 1/2 cup
Besan(chick pea flour) 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves(finely chopped) 1/2 cup
Onions(finely chopped) 1 cup
Red chilli powder 2 tea spns
Ghee/Butter 1 tea spn
Salt as per taste

Mix all the flours, coriander leaves, onion, chilli powder and salt. Make a dough of chapathi dough consistency.
Apply water to tava(so that the dough does not stick to it). Spread out the dough on tava by hand applying water to hand if necessary, make it as thin as possible(the tava should not be hot while doing it). Cook on a low flame. After sometime, turn roti and cook from other side. Cook till it gets brownish color from both sides.
Serve hot with coconut chutney.

Serves : 4
Preparation time : 25min

  1. Shilpa, my parents grew up in Belgaum and we had thalipith frequently for breakfast with a blob of homemade white butter. Yum!!

    A question: you have about 2 and a half cups of flour and a cup of onions. How many thalipiths does this make? You mentioned that it serves 2. My question is how many times? Or does it make only 2 large thalipiths?

  2. Hi Manisha,

    I think you are right. It would make 4 thalipits and can serve 4 (I have updated the post).
    Again depends on how thick & how big you make them.

  3. Hi Shilpa ..
    my hubby found ur site while searching for Bangda curry n since then we have been great fan of u & ur recipies .. i am an unexperienced cook but still i can do ur recipes .. thanks for all efforts u put in .. yeah n one more thing we loveeeeeeee thalipith n this recipe is awesome my thalipith came out to b great .. thanks again ..

  4. Hi Shilpa, I am from Belgaum n now living in Delhi. I love thalipeth n can have it every other day. But I make it in a different way.thats my moms way. Firstly I don’t use any besan as I don’t like it so much n upsets my stomach. Hence I use 1/3 cup urad flour. The rest all is the same. u can aslo add some ragi flour.This makes them light n I add lots of water n make it like a dosa batter n also spread n cook like a dosa. U can try this. It will taste good with some butter n garlic chutney powder.
