Thanks for this recipe!

In video, you remarked that your mother made this in your childhood and you loved the crisp edges.This made me nostalgic, as I too loved to eat the crisp edges of a similar item called "thali peeth" in mky childhood!

Your website has listed two thalipeeth recipes, but the konkani version is made from rava/rice flour instead of bajra/besan; and has thinly sliced coconut pieces and chopped onion and green chillies. It needs very little soaking. It is often cut into quarters while on tawa, and oil is drizzled in the cuts, to increase the crisp edges.

BTW this particular video has a deformity at the bottom edge.

I grew up in Andhra eating my Mom's Dibba roti every sunday. It was a special event. We had a large family. Dibba roti was made with urid and rice (it was like idli proportion i think) and just jeera. The battter was poured in thick iron kadai about 3" high, covered with a metal plate carrying hot charcoals. It was cooked on a slow flame for a long time. The crust was atleast 1/4" thick, and the roti looked like a cake. It was cooked on the second side without lid for 10 mins or so to make it a bit crunchy. I remember cutting it like cake, everyone wanting a lot of the crunchy part.... we ate mostly with a hot pickle and yoghurt. Thanks for bringing good memories back..
