Besan Cheela is a very popular breakfast recipe in India. It is made by pouring a thin chickpea flour batter seasoned with spices on a hot skillet and cooked under crisp. It is similar to savoury crepes. If you are a begginer then you may opt. for non-stick pan to make some delicious besan cheela. It has been my favourite since my childhood days and I am very sure you will love them too. You can serve it as it is or it can be sandwiched in fresh bread slices, just how you serve omelette. If you are deciding to turn vegan then it can be a perfect replacement for omelette.

Cook until crisp
  • After pouring the batter turn the flame on low and let the batter set for few minutes.
  • Roast on a low flame in order to achieve a golden crust by drizzling oil once in a while.
  • Flip and roast from the other side as well so that the cheela gets crispy from both the sides which enhance its texture.
  • Fold in half and serve hot! Alternatively, pair it with bread, chutneys, dips or your favourite tea. I prefer it with green chutney because it elevates it’s flavours to the next level.
