1/2-1/3tspGreen chiliesfinely chopped (optional if you like spicy)
1/4tspBlack salt if not available, substitute for your regular salt
1/4tspCarom seeds (ajwain)
Add all ingredients - cheela batter, salt, turmeric, carom seeds, tomatoes, onions, cilantro leaves, ginger, green chilies - into a mixing bowl. Mix everything well.
Medium heat a flat non-stick pan.
Take a ladle full of the prepped batter and pour on the pan.
With the back of the ladle, spread lightly so the cheela doesn’t break OR rotate the pan to spread it as much as possible.
Within a few minutes, you will see the edges begin to leave the pan.
Flip it and cook; pressing down lightly with a spatula for thorough cooking.
Flip it over again. When you see light brown spots on the cheela, you know it’s done.
Enjoy the cheela hot! Consider dipping it in some chutney.
