Sorghum, a wholesome cereal which I always appreciate in this space is making it’s appearance once again. It’s in new flatbread form “Jowar thalipeeth“. As twins on this food journey, you know my love towards jowar rotti. It’s quite interestingly crazy one. Yes you can call me crazy food lover. The food from North Karnataka has always got special space in my heart. And if I ever get a chance to play around with a cereal other than rice, I never let it go. And it happened with “Jowar” last week in the form of flatbread called thalipeeth. It’s incredibly soft, amazingly delicious and healthy with all the greens.
The basic sorghum(jowar) flour is used as the base here and it’s loaded with greens like dill leaves. But any greens would be a nice addition to this. Say fenugreek, drumstick or palak. The most important and flavor elevating ingredient in jowar thalipeeth is cucumber. Grated cucumber works like magic here giving nice aroma and keeps the flatbread mellow-y soft. Which is what I like the most in this food.
When it comes to serving, the jowar thalipeeth can be served with ‘N’ no of sides. Be it a spicy chutney, gravy or stirfry, pairs very well. If not, you can have it with plain yogurt topped with some chutney powder. Which is awesome isn’t so?
