Thalipeeth at Samosa House

If you're interested in comparatively rare regional Indian cooking, Samosa House is now making fresh thalipeeth.

Thalipeeth is a Maharashtrian pancake made from coarsely ground black lentils, roasted chickpeas, wheat, rice, onion, and spices. It is fried into something that vaguely resembles a large, thin, latke.

At Samosa House they're serving it with a garnish of chopped onions, special hot chutney, and a bowl of raita,

One order (two plate sized pancakes) makes a decent light meal, or heavy snack.

  1. I hit Samosa House every so often. Did they just recently add this to their menu, to your knowledge? And which of the two locations was offering it?

      They've been making it at the original (West) location for a few months. They have a new(ish) chef and are offering regional thalis and other unusual specialties like thalipeeth on a separate menu.
