Jowar Thalipith with Green Onions

jwari Thaalipeeth
Along with rice and wheat, Jowar or Sorghum is also a staple in some regions of India.  Jwari Bhakri or Jolada Roti is a popular flatbread in Maharashtra and Karnataka.  Thalipith is similar to a pancake and is made of a variety of flours.

Jowar/Sorghum/Jwari/Jola Flour - 1 cup
Rice Flour - 1/4 cup
Green Onions/Scallions/Kandyachi Path - about 1 cup
Green Chilli Paste - 1 tsp
Cumin/Jeera Seeds - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1/2 tsp

How to prepare Jwari Thaalipeeth:
1. Finely chop green onions, both white and green parts.  Finely chop green chillies or use green chilli paste.  You can use red onions instead of green onions.
2. In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients except oil.  Add water, little at a time and mix to form a soft dough.  Divide the dough into 5 round balls.

3. Grease a plastic wrap with oil or cooking spray.  Place a dough ball in the centre of the plastic sheet.  Using your fingers, spread the dough ball into a round pancake.
4. Heat a griddle/tawa and add few drops of oil.  I used a cast iron flat pan.  Spread the oil evenly.  Carefully flip the pancake on your palm and place it on the hot griddle.  Drizzle little oil if required. Cook the pancake covered for a couple minutes until both sides turn slightly brown.  Cook it longer if you like it more crisp.
Serve Jwari Thalipith with curds and/or butter.  I like it with Dry Chutney.
