If someone ever offers you "Dhapate" - make sure the person is giving you these delicious edible ones and not the other!! The other meaning of "Dhapate" in Marathi is slaps on the back!!:-D
I think these dhapate can be considered as a variation of Thalipeeth.

Dhapate - Count 4 or 5
Multi-grain pat-a-cake
3/4 cup jowar flour/sorghum flour
1/4 cup besan/chickpea flour
2 tbsp rice flour
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 green chili, minced
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup cilantro/coriander leaves, chopped
1/2 tsp goda masala
1/4 tsp owa/ajwain/carrom seeds
1 1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp whole flax seeds (optional)*
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp hot oil

oil for roasting

Suggested Accompaniment
Homemade white butter (Traditional)
Tomato ketchup (my choice!)

1. Mix all the ingredients except oil for roasting.
2. Add water gingerly to knead a dough.
3. Heat a tawa or pan. Make equal balls about 4 or 5. Pat them on the pan using wet hands. Make one hole in a center.
4. Add a drop of oil in the center. Cover with a lid. Let it cook. Remove the lid. Flip and cook on the other side.
5. Serve with homemade white butter/loNi or makhan.

Note -
1. Flax seeds are not the part of the original recipe. I add them along with sesame seeds.
