Ready in a jiffy, with ingredients readily available at home, the Quick Rava Thalipeeth is a common breakfast recipe in the Saraswat Brahman community.

It is kind of similar to Koki of Sindhi and Bhakti of Goan cuisine. The Rava Thalipeeth is like a thick pancake made with a quick-fix dough of roasted rava, perked up with coconut, onions et al.

Once cooked, the thalipeeth tastes quite exquisite with an awesome texture that is crisp outside and soft inside. While it is quite an easy dish, what differentiates an excellent thalipeeth from an ok-ok one is the way in which it has been shaped.

You need to deftly flatten it on the tava with wet hands. It is no rocket science, but requires a little bit of practice to master, so do not worry if your first few thalipeeth end up in odd shapes or of varying thickness. You will soon master it, and then it is nothing but applause waiting for you at the dining table!

Enjoy Quick Rava Thalipeeth with Red Chilli Thecha, Green Chilli Thecha and a dollop of Safed Makhan You can also have it with Green Chutney or tomato ketchup.

Do try other Thalipeeth variants like Jowar Bajra Besan Thalipeeth Upvaas Thalipeeth , Methi Thalipeeth, Sabudana Thalipeeth, and Quick Maharashtrian Thalipeeth .

How to make Quick Rava Thalipeeth in detail

  1. Take semolina in a deep bowl. The grains of the semolina should be of thicker variety.
  2. Add the onions. This gives a good crunch to the thalipeeth.
  3. Add the coconut. The proportion of coconut and semolina should be 1:1.
  4. Add the green chillies for that much-needed spice.
  5. Add the turmeric powder.
  6. Add the coriander. It enhances the aroma and flavour of Indian dishes.
  7. Add the sugar. Though it's very small quantity it adds on to balance the taste.
  8. Add the salt.
  9. Add approx. ¼ cup of water, mix well so the mixture binds well. The amount of water added should be just enough for binding so as to not release the gluten from the semolina. Too much water may make shaping the thalipeeth difficult. Also add water very gradually and keep checking that the mixture binds just enough perfectly to form a ball.
  10. Divide the mixture into 5 equal portions.
  11. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it with ½ tsp of oil.
  12. Take a portion of the mixture and flatten it using your palms.
  13. Place the flattened ball on the greased non-stick tava (griddle).
  14. Wet your hands with little water, flatten the ball further and spread it using your fingers to make a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle.
  15. Again wet your fingers and dab it very well. The mixture should bind together like a roti, though some rough edges are fine.
  16. Cook it on one side on a slow flame for 2 to 3 minutes or till golden brown spots appear on one side. Do not hurry up in turning the first side, else the thalipeeth will disintegrate and then re-shaping will be very difficult.Then turn around and cook on the other side also, using ½ tsp of oil, till golden brown spots appear on the other side too.
  17. Finally cook well on both sides till it turns crisp from outside but it is soft from inside.
  18. Repeat steps 11 to 18 to make 4 more Quick Ravyache Thalieepth (Semolina pancakes). While making the next thalipeeth if you feel the mixture is not binding well because the semolina absorbs water with time, then add little water again and bind it well.
  19. Serve sooji thalipeeth with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
