Kakdi means Cucumber. This Thalpith is very different from the typical Bhajni Thalpith. Flour used in this thalpith is only whole wheat flour. My MIL taught me this thalpith. Its very good for summer.
Cucumber (Kakdi) -1
Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Sesame seeds - 1/2 tea spoon
Ajwain - 1/2 tea spoon
Chili powder - 1, 1/2 tea spoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tea spoon
Chopped coriander leaves - 1 table spoon (optional)
Oil - 3-4 Table spoon
Salt to taste
Wash, peel and grate the cucumber. Add salt, chili powder, Ajwain, sesame seeds, turmeric powder and keep aside for 5 minutes. Now add wheat flour as much the cucumber water can consume. Add flour slowly till it become a soft dough. Spread 1 table spoon oil on the surface of flat frying pan.
Make medium size balls of dough. Keep one of the dough ball in the centre of the pan. Using your palm and fingers flatten the dough into a round even roti. (apply some water to your palm before it.) Make 2-3 holes with the your finger. Add 1-2 drops of oil in each of these holes. Cover the lid and cook for 2 min. Turn the side and roast other side.
Serve hot with curd.
