Onion Thalipeeth

Onion Thalipeet is Maharashtrian invention of paratha with amazing blend of multiple flours, spices & onions. It’s also a very unique in preparation, as mixture needs to be flattened using hands:-) It can be quick option for breakfast or a light meal. My husband’s comments when I cooked this recently at home – “I can possibly eat this three times a day, without loosing my taste!!”!!

What makes this even amazing is the combination with “Special Baingan Pickle”.. Trust me, this pickle has to be a very special recipe and it is so tasty that we end up fighting for last bite everytime!!
