Jowar Thalipeeth

Hello dear readers! Today I’m going to share a healthy recipe called “thalipeeth” prepared with Jowar flour. This was prepared for Saturday dinner by Santoshi Nayak. It came out super duper tasty. She adapted the recipe from a food group and tweaked it as per our taste. Thank you Santoshi for passing the recipe and for the yummy thalipeeth and green chutney that was fingerlicking good.
