This is also my entry to Summer Express Cooking Event.
Weekend was good; Sunday morning our Breakfast was Cheelay with green chutney. This recipe comes from my Mom-in-law.
Besan ke Cheelay
2 cups Besan
1 large finely chopped Onion
1 small finely chopped tomato
1 finely chopped Green Chilli
Few finely chopped Coriander leaves
1 tsp Ajwain
1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1 tsp Chat Masala
1 tsp Coriander Powder
1- 1/2 cup water to make batter
Oil for cooking
Salt to taste
Mix all the ingredients except water in a big bowl. Now start adding water in small quantity to make a smooth batter, so that there should be no lumps in it. (I use egg whisk to make it smooth) Add water till it comes to a thick pouring consistency or like an idly batter.
Heat a non-stick- tawa or heavy bottom frying pan, then turn the heat on medium. Put little oil on tawa & spread 1 serving spoonful of batter evenly on it , with the help of a ladle like a thin pancake. Put some more oil on the top and when it cooked turn it upside down. Let it be brown & crispy from both sides. Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
Serve hot with green chutney and chilled lassi or steaming hot ginger tea.
