Ingredients

  • 1 cup besan

    1 cup water

    2 tsp salt or to taste

    1/2 onion, sliced

    1 tsp chilli powder

    1 tsp ajwain

    1 green chilli - finely chopped

    1/2 cup methi leaves-finely chopped

    4 tsp oil for frying the chelas

Method

  • Mix all the ingredients, except oil, to a thick pouring consistency, adding the water a little at a time.

    Leave to rest for 15-20 minutes.

    Heat a tbsp or so of oil in a frying pan, then pour it off into a container.

    Keeping the heat high pour some batter in the center of the pan, spreading it out a little.

    Lower the heat and let cook till the edges brown a little and can be lifted easily.

    Dribble a little oil around it, turning the pan so the oil goes under the cheela.

    Flip it over to cook slightly on the other side and before serving it hot with a green chutney.
