Absolutely love this flatbread variety and I usually make this on weekends so that husband stuffs himself with it. A great way to include flours most of which are gluten free especially for kids. Loved the addition of greens.

Of course I have heard of thalipeeth and have occasionally had it too, but had no idea how it was made or what ingredients went into it. Very nice recipe, simple and for a nutritious and authentic Maharashtrian dish. Thank you for sharing. Sujata Shukla
