Shingada Flour Thalipeeth (Singoda/Waterchestnut Flour Pancake)

Happy Navratri!! This thalipeeth is usually made for fasting. The Shingada or waterchestnut flour makes it a more healthier alternative to sabudana (sago). Sometimes I make it at snack time for my kids if they are really hungry and need some variety. It is very quick and easy recipe, not to say tasty as well.

Ingredients: Singada/Singoda flour (Water chestnut flour) - 1 cup, Roasted peanut powder - 1/4 cup, jeera/cumin seeds - 1 tsp, red/chilli powder - 1 tsp or chopped green chillies - 2-3, salt to taste, chopped cilantro - 1 tbsp, oil - 1 tsp + 2/3 tsp for cooking, Water to mix dough.

Method: Take flour, peanut powder, jeera/cumin seeds, red chilli powder/chopped green chillies, cilantro, salt and little oil in a bowl and mix the dough.
Grease a pan/tava with oil and flatten the dough to make a thalipeeth/pancake. Cover and cook for 3-4 mins on medium high heat and turn over and cook the other side for 3-4 mins. When both sides are cooked, serve it hot with peanut chutney (see sabudana vada with chutney) or yoghurt.

Enjoy and till my next post, take care everyone!!
