Pumpkin Talipeth

Talipeth is a one of the common breakfast found in almost all parts of Karnataka. Talipeth can be made from Rice/jowar/Ragi/gram  or mix combination of flours. Adding grated vege to any type of talipeth adds a unique flavour to it. Most commonly prepared are from Rice flour though i love the talipeth prepared by jowar( jolla) flour. Here in Singapore though we find jowar flour most of the time the flour is quite old. Now a days i hardly find time to go and buy it so i use the most commonly found rice flour to make talipeth.
