The Pitle is just the easiest recipe to prepare and goes well as a side dish and a spread. This recipe is from The Singing Chef and is a speciality of the Konkan world. The pitle tasted very well and I served  along with Soya pulkas and tofu and sprouts salad. which completed the nutrients forum.

Hey! Pitle looks great! Are you going to (or have already) put up soya phulkas too? Is it soya flour entirely? or some mix with wheat flour? Sounds very healthy. :)
