Dhapate is a Maharashtrian breakfast dish, especially made in the Plateau areas. Dhapata means tapping and gets its name because of the way it is made. It is similar to Thalepeeth

  • Wheat Flour (Kanik) – 1 cup
  • Gram Flour (Besan) – ½ cup
  • Thecha – 2-3 tbsp (crushed: 10-12 garlic, 1-1.5 inch ginger and 4-5 green chilli)
  • Any chopped leafy vegetables -  ½ cup (optional)
  • Fresh chopped coriander leaves – ½ cup (Chopped)
  • Salt – to taste
