Cucumber Thalipeeth

Guest author: Gauri Naik

Thalipeeth is a Maharashtrian dish mainly eaten for breakfast. They are like rotis. They taste great and are of various types. This recipe is made up of cucumber and rice rava.


1 big cucumber
2 cups of Rice rava.
2 green chilles crushed
1/3 cup corander leaves
Onion (Optional)
Salt as per taste.

Before making this for breakfast, make the dough previous night itself. Grate the cucumber and wait for some time till it leaves water. Now add the rice rava and mix well. Tightly stuff it in a vessel and leave it overnight. Next day morning add the crushed chillies, coriander leaves, salt and onions and mix it well.

Now take a little mixture and pat it on a greased cold tava till it forms a round shape roti. Keep the tava on the gas and spread some oil and let it cook till brown on both the sides.

Serve hot with curds and dry groundnut chutney or mango pickle.

That's my problem, I don't pre-plan enough foods and miss out... I would love this for breakfast, I'd have to remember to make it the night before.

lovely recipe..Thalipeeth is one my all time favourites...I use wheat flour to make it...or sometimes use the readymade Bedekar Bhajani.

Gauri is not able to post her comments due to some problem..She heartly thanks all of you for appreciating her recipes

@ Priya..Gauri's reply to u-

In this dish you can use idli rava. But In maharastra we make this rava with sadha rice(rice which we eat everyday.) not with boiled rice. But idli rava made from boiled rice can also be used.
