Tandala Thalipeeth #sikandalouscuisine
Karwar is a small town in in Karnataka , south of Goa .The cuisine is thus quite similar to Goan , without influences of the Portuguese which is seen in Goan cuisine . You could say the Karwar Cuisine has retained it's pristine nature and traditional flavors. I chanced upon this fabulous book Karwar Cuisine by Sindhu Dubashashi , its a fantastic read and showcases this little known coastal town of Karnataka's cuisine beautifully.
2 Cups Rice Flour.
3/4 Cups Finely Chopped Onions.
3-4 Green Chilies Minced.
1/4" Finely Chopped Ginger.
1 Teaspoon Sugar.
1/4 Cup Grated Coconut.
1.Mix all ingredients apart from oil , add water and knead till you get a roti / chapatti consistency dough.
2. On a plastic sheet pat a small ball of the dough to shape into a moderate thick chapatti/thalipeeth .
3. Transfer the thalipeeth to a medium hot pan,pour oil around the thalipeeth, cover with a lid and cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes till it changes color.Flip the thalipeeth, drizzle more oil and cook another 2-3 minutes.
4. You end up with a crisp though soft thalipeeth which is traditionally eaten with ghee or white butter.This was delicious !
