Multigrain Vegetable Cheela

  • Recipe makes: 3 pieces
  • Recommended serving size: 1 pieces
All that you need to prepare this recipe
  • 1/4th cup gram flour (besan)
  • 2 tsp, whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp, oats grounded or flour
  • A pinch, Ajwain
  • Turmeric as required
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp, finely chopped onion
  • 2 tsp, finely chopped green capsicum
  • 3 tsp, grated paneer
  • 2 tsp, grated carrot
  • Oil as required
How to prepare?
  • Heat a sauté pan and add little oil to it.
  • Add chopped vegetable and sauté for some time.
  • Now add salt to taste and mix well. Remove the pan from the flame and let the vegetables cool.
  • Once at room temperature, add grated paneer to the mixture and mix well.
  • Mix wheat flour, gram flour and oats flour in a bowl. Add turmeric powder, Ajwain and salt in the bowl and mix well. Keep adding water to form a thick batter-like consistency.
  • Mix all the ingredients well to prepare a batter. There should not be lumps in the batter.
  • Make sure the consistency of the batter is thick. Once the batter is formed, cover with a lid and keep it aside for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Heat a pan on medium flame, smear 1 teaspoon oil and pour 2 tablespoon of the batter. Spread the batter in a circular motion till a thin layer is formed.
  • Now pour some oil on this pancake and turn it to other side. Cook the cheela from both the sides, ensuring that it doesn't burn.
  • Once cooked, put a spoonful of filling on it and flip the one side onto the other to close it.
  • Remove it from pan once it is crispy and appears brown in colour. Follow this method for making more cheelas.
  • Serve cheela hot with mint-coriander chutney or tomato chutney.
