Dhapate from Maharashtra

Dhapate

Dhapate is a multigrain roti from Maharashtra and is made by mixing all the grain flour along with spices and vegetables.

The first time when I read it, I thought this will be an excellent roti to enjoy and it is healthy too as we will be including so many different grains. This is almost similar to Thalipeeth.

I adapted this from Meera, who has a huge collection of traditional Marathi dishes. So when I had planned a Maharashtrian thali, I decided to make it. I know it was too early, however, I was planning on making Indian Flatbread in C4AS blog when I had planned on making AtoZ Explore the flavors during April.

When we decided we would do Flatbread for September, I saved it for this marathon. Apart from this, I had another one all done and ready. So you would notice that these pictures are different from the rest. I mostly plan all the pictures to be in the same pattern for myself to know which Mega BM it belongs.

Anyway, when I had made the thali, I had invited my parents for lunch and they enjoyed this flatbread. They said it tasted something very similar to what we have in Andhra yet the taste is different and delicious too.

The other Ds that I had on the list were Dhakai Paratha, Dahi Methi Poori, Dhebra, Doodh Paratha, Dry Fruits Meetha Paratha, Dim Paratha (with eggs), Dashmi Roti.

As I said since I was planning a thali, I had to make sure the bread goes well with the side dishes I was making. So I settled with Dhapate, which refers to both the dish and also slapping on the back in Marathi. I felt this name was given more so because the dough is taken between your palm and clapped about to make a disc.

So it is D for Dhapate in the A to Z Flatbread and More, where I am doing AtoZ Indian Flatbreads. If you are interested, check out what is D in the AtoZ Dosa Varieties.

  1. We have the same bread from Maharashtra today – yes even I have Dhapate for D .
    While reading your recipe I see that it is quite different from what I posted , the addition of Goda masala must have changed the flavor . Let me give this one a try too , though we enjoyed the fried version too .

  2. That is one more new dish to learn. The different flours added will give this dhapate an unique flavour, I guess. I love to look at thalis but never have the courage to make one. Your thali looks awesome and I wouldn’t mind if you invite me to taste this..

  3. I think your blog is already or gradually becoming a veritable encyclopedia of dishes of various regions and countries and alsoI admire your tenacity and stamina to participate in marathons all through the year. Dhapate seems a tasty dish.

    1. Mr. KP, thanks for dropping by and for your kind words. i only wish I could do more..and about participating, since I am conducting these marathons, it is expected I participate and on top do it on both the sites..heheh..:)..yes Dhapate was so good, you must try it.

  4. Looks like this is the popular choice for the letter D. The combination of flours and spices sounds very tempting. I have all the ingredients and so shall try soon.

  5. Reading the first line of your post, I thought it was thalipeeth! Such a healthy and f;avorful dish this is.Goda masala in a flatbread is new to me!

  6. This looks quite similar to thalipeeth but yes in that coriander and onion is used much more, plus addition of goda masala must have added to the taste. Looks yum

  7. Dhapate looking so tempting, well in Pune I have not seen this recipe with this name. Will surely check about it. in my to do list.
