Besan ka Cheela

A chick pea flour (besan) 'pancake'
Recipe By : Niru Gupta
Type: Chaat Serving: 8-10


  • Besan (Chickpea Flour) 1 cup
  • Water 1 cup (approx)
  • Salt 2 tsp or to taste
  • Chilli powder 1 tsp
  • Ajwain (thymol seeds) 1 tsp
  • Hari Mirch (green chilli), finely chopped to taste
  • Methi (Fenugreek ) leaves finely chopped ½ cup
  • Oil for frying the cheelas approx 4 tsp


  • 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 centre 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 green chutney.
