Methi Thalipeeth is a traditional Maharashtrian breakfast, made with a mix of flours, aromatic fenugreek leaves and a touch of spice powders.

It has a rustic and homely texture and a really inspiring flavour. It is nutritious and filling – a good way to kick-start your day. The best part is that it has a well-balanced flavour on its own and needs just a cup of curds for serving.

Make sure you cook the Methi Thalipeeth till it is slightly crisp, so that you get a nice aroma, flavour and texture.

To make the dish more exciting, serve it with accompaniments like the Sukhi Lehsun Chutney and Dry Peanut Chutney Powder .
