Squash Thalipeeth

Thalipeeth is a popular Maharashtrian b'fast/snack item. I recently started adding frozen cooked squash to make it healthier. Here's how I make it:

2 cups ready-made Bhajani Flour (see note)
1 cup frozen cooked squash (thawed)
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
chopped cilantro
1.5 tsp salt or to taste
1 tsp red chilli pwd or to taste

Mix all the above ingredients. Add water, a little at a time, to form a dough. Consistency of the dough should be a little looser than regular roti dough.

To prepare the thalipeeth, take a ball of dough the size of a large lemon. Flatten it on a plastic sheet with your fingers to get a round shape. Poke a few holes in the flattenned dough.

Roast on a pan/tava on medium heat with a few drops of oil until golden brown on both sides.

Serve warm with homemade butter/yogurt/pickle/chutney.

Note - I bought my Bhajani Flour in Mumbai. It is a mixture of jowar, bajra, wheat, udad, chana and mung flours with some coriander-cumin pwd. You can simply mix any/all of these flours in desired proportion if you do not have ready-made Bhajani flour.
