Besan-Methi ka Cheela

Week 4 Day 3 of BM #60 -

Besan 1 cup
Methi leaves, finely chopped
Onion, cabbage, carrot finely chopped
Ginger-Green Chili paste as needed
Ajwain, Coriander and cumin seeds crushed 1/2 tsp each

Besan-Methi ka Cheela

Method Of Preparation -

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a flowing batter (like Dosa batter).

Heat a griddle / Tawa and pour a ladle full of batter in the center and gently spread it with the ladle. 

Spray oil all around the dosa and cover until the underside is cooked.

Flip it and cook for about a minute and remove.

Continue to make more such dosas/cheelas until the batter lasts.

Serve them hot with chutney of your choice.
