Vermicelli Thalipeeth

vermicelli thalipeethMy love for the popular Maharashtrian dish Thalipeeth started in Belgaum. They are healthy, very delicious  and the best part is, they are easy to make. As much as I love the thick bhakris and thalipeeths, V is not such a big fan. I have been trying to make different types of these bhakris/thalipeeths lately in the hope that he will start liking them some day. That would also give me loads of easy options for breakfast.

One of my favorite ingredients to experiment with is vermicelli. Somehow I keep reaching to the vermicelli jar. I make simple upmavegetable upmaidlis etc with it. Recently I tried this thalipeeth with vermicelli and it turned out delicious. The best part for me was, the child loved it.

Here is a thalipeeth recipe that I used to make frequently. Check out Nupur’s thalipeeth recipe.

3/4 cup sooji/rava
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup wheat flour

Serve hot.

  1. A good innovative mind seriously!! Thalipeeth is a very good food which is usually liked by most!! I usually would do it and bake it till roast which would enhance the taste and to decorate it, I would just make a small hole in the middle. I need to try this vermicelli too. I just loved the pictorial representations along with the explanation. I have already ordered all the ingredients required from Hope to try it very soon. Thanks for such a new thought provoking recipe…

  2. I have tried this recopies today. test is good but while eating it became very much dry. i had taken all Ingredients same as per you suggest. but don’t know why it so so dry while eating.

    1. Vaishali, thalipeeth are usually a bit dry. But if you want to make them soft, add more coconut and yogurt. Also make sure vermicelli and rava are fried well
