Bhajaniche Thalipith

I think every person who is living in Maharashtra or visited Maharashtra, must have known about this marvelous dish called "Bhajaniche Thalipith". There are variety of thalipiths in Maharashtra. But the bhajani one is very tasty and nutritious among all. "Bhajani" is a flour of roasted multigrain and pulses. In Maharashtra you can easily get this flour in every store but I prepare this at home. My MIL taught me to make this bhajani. The flour's aroma itself is very tempting. In this rainy days bhajani thalipith with any chutney or pickle tastes awesome. It is very nutritious and can be make in less oil.
