Kholsapori Pitha Recipe

Kholsapori Pitha are very much akin to the Maharashtrian Thalipeet or the Akki roti from Karnataka, the difference being that it is made on an earthen tava. What makes it special is the addition of dried Parijath flower/ Night flowering Jasmine. ❤️

Ingredients :

  • 250gms rice flour
  • 3 onions chopped fine
  • 2 green chillies crushed
  • Coriander leaves chopped fine
  • Salt

Method :
Make a batter by adding as much water as is required to the above mentioned ingredients. Heat a skillet. Pour a ladleful of batter and spread a Pitha 6 inches in diameter. Roast on both sides by drizzling oil. Goes well with garlic chutney or Bilahir tok. I enjoyed mine with fresh butter.
