Kakdi Thalipeeth (Cucumber Pancake)
washed, peeled and grated
~ 1 1/2
2 – 3
coarsely ground or finely chopped
1 – 2
fresh coriander leaves
Add semolina , cucumber, green chilli, chopped coriander leaves, salt to a mixing bowl
Make 3-4 ball sized balls from the dough.
Lightly grease a non-stick skillet with little oil or ghee.
Keep one of the dough balls in the centre of the skillet. Using your hand flatten the dough into a round. Dip your hand in little water before patting, so that the dough does not stick
You can alternatively use a plastic sheet/wet kitchen towel or banana leaf to make the thalipeeth/pancake and transfer it carefully to the hot griddle.
Make 5 holes in the thalipeeth/pancake. Drizzle 1-2 drops of oil/ghee in each hole.
Cover and cook on medium flame till the lower side is light brown and crispy. Flip and cook for 1-2 minutes more.
Repeat these steps for the rest of the dough balls.
Serve hot on its own or with chutney or pickle or curd.
