  5. Place the dough ball on the sheet and using your palm start flattening the dough to make a round shape. It should be a little thicker than a chapati. Dip your palm in water before your start flattening the dough. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Once flat and round, make holes in the thalipeeth with your fingers.

* The bhajani flour is easily available in the market, but if you can't find it, there's an instant way to make it at home. Take one part Bajra atta (millet flour), half part rice flour, half part Besan or Bengal gram flour, half part Jowar atta (sorghum flour), one-third of urad dal flour or black gram flour, half a part wheat flour. Dry roast all these flours and mix and your bhajani is ready.

Bhajani can be stored for four to five months. So you can also make it in bulk and store in airtight containers. Tip: Store the flour in the refrigerator to extend its shelf life.
