Suji ka Cheela is an easy and healthy breakfast item. Suji or semolina or rava is a base for delicious recipes. We can make Idli, Upma, Halwa and several other recipes using Suji. Last weekend, we wished to try something new. I had made lot of recipes using Besan and suji. So I was craving for a new yet healthy taste. Since the lockdown, I had stacked up extra packs of Suji, Poha, Atta and Chawal. I wanted to make sure that in case no vegetables were supplied, we still manage through this tough time period.
About the health benefits of suji, most of us know that it makes really a healthy and light meal. Suji is rich in Proteins, iron, Fibre, vitamin A, B and calicum. Using it appropriately in your meals, can help lose weight. Its a good option for kids who are picky eaters.
I planned to make the suji ka cheela for the breakfast. Without giving a thought how and what I should add, I just tried to make it like besan ka cheela. So, I mixed suji and water and kept it at rest for 20 min. Suji absorbed most of the water and rose slightly. With the soft texture, I could guess that the crispy suji cheelas are on way. Added onion, green chillies and spices and some water to have smooth consistency for spreading on tawa. It was really easy and not that tough as it seemed to be. My basic tips are same as for making the other cheelas. Place the mixture on a hot tawa. Cover with a steel plate for letting it cook in steam on simmer. Increase flame in between to check if its not sticky and apply ghee/oil when partailly done. Gradually, it will leave tawa and you may flip to cook from the other side. Remember to season the tawa with raw onion.
I have used Desi Ghee for making the suji ka cheela. You may use any oil for it. We had it with mango chutney and Tomato ketchup.
Which chutney is your favorite to team up with these delicious cheelas?
I am waiting to hear from you!! Happy Cooking!!
