ತಾಲಿಪಟ್ ~ Talipatt

Talipatt is a North Karnataka snack which can be had any time of the day. The name Talipatt has an interesting background. The word can be split into Tali + Patt which means 'clap' and 'sound'. Originally, Thalipatt used to be made by clapping the dough with hands only. Later people resorted to more convenient methods and flattened it on the kitchen platform.


  • Rice flour - 1 cup
  • Besan - ¼ cup
  • Jowar flour - ¼ cup
  • Wheat flour - ¼ cup
  • Chilly powder - 3 to 4 teaspoons
  • Jeera - ½ teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder - ½ teaspoon
  • Salt - to taste
  • Medium sized onion - finely chopped
  • Coriander - finely chopped
  • Medium sized Cucumber - grated (optional)
  • Medium sized Carrot - grated (optional)
  • Cooked rice (optional) - this enhances the taste and makes it soft
  • Oil

Mix all the flours. Add chopped onion, coriander, grated cucumber/carrot, rice, jeera, chilly powder, turmeric powder, and salt. Mix well by hand.

Add water and continue mixing until the dough is consistent. This dough should be slightly softer than chapati dough.

Wet your hands. Take a piece of cotton cloth, wet it and squeeze it lightly. Take handful dough and flatten it on the cloth as shown below.

Lift the cloth along with the flattened dough and place it on a hot tawa. Apply oil on both sides and cook for 2 to 3 minutes on high flame.

Serve with chatni & cord or chatni & butter.
