Today is the fourth day of mega marathon with theme A to z flatbreads and more. Since I took part in this mega marathon all of a sudden, so there wasn’t any preparation. Leave aside the preparation of dishes ahead of time, even my list isn’t ready. It’s like ‘Roz kua khodna aur pani pina’ i.e. everyday I have to think /search about flatbread under a letter, make it and if liked by my family, then post it. But seriously, I’m enjoying it.
For the fourth day, under letter D, I had certain dishes in mind like dal poori, dashmi roti, dhebra and dhapate. Out of all, I settles for dhapate as I had bought jowar flour few days back that I hadn’t used till now. So what could be the better option that to use it and make a healthy, hearty and crisp roti for letter D.
I watched few videos for that. In every video they said that it is difficult to make dhapate since practice is required. Even then I decided to go ahead with this only. When I started making dhapate, believe me it was very easy to make. May be, being a Punjabi, I have lot of practice of making makki ki roti and that helped me. But let me tell you if you have ever made makki ki roti, this dhapate dough is much easier to handle.
Now coming to the taste of dhapate, truly speaking I wasn’t expecting a very great taste. But believe me, after clicking pics, when I put a morsel in my mouth, I couldn’t stop myself eating it and finished three dhapate then only. It is not like I eat that much. I just eat one chapati only, but finishing three dhapate….you can very well understand how tasty that would be. It doesn’t stop here. When my daughter came back from the school, she wanted something to eat. The same story got repeated with her as well and I too gulped down one more. God knows how I’m going to digest it 😀
You too make a story of yours by eating this delicious flatbread from Maharashtra – Dahi Dhapate. Before that, get up and make it. Here is my recipe….
