Bread Besan Cheela

Winters are On and I have amazing varieties of snacks and soups to try on. Today is a special recipe. This one I got to learn from my mother-in-law. She was an excellent cook and recipes and their ratios were on her tips. Its an innovative approach with an easy cooking. Bread Besan Cheela doesnt require lot of ingredients. We just need Besan (Chickpea Flour) , onion, veggies of the season and bread.

It doesnt involve deep frying. We shall just cook it on tawa with desi ghee just like any cheela or dosa. We can make it as spicy as we wish with the use of green chillies. In winters, these light snacks are actually filling as besan is quite rich in proteins and keeps the filling feeling for quite a long time.

Hope you enjoy it!!

Recipe Notes

People these days prefer using non-stick tawas but over years I have seen that the best cooking can be done on iron tawa. These bread besan cheelas were made using Iron tawa and had no hiccups in making them. just wipe them with slight water and onion in between and rest all falls in place. Using Iron tawa makes sure that its not uncooked else I feel their is a raw taste of besan. You are free to use your preferred utensils.
