1/2 cup Besan

1 Cup sooji/Semolina

½ teaspoon kasoori Methi leaves-finely chopped

Green chillies-finely chopped to taste

1/4 teaspoon asafetida powder

2" piece of ginger, finely grated

2 teaspoon Salt or to taste

4 teaspoons Ghee/oil for frying the cheelas

1 cup Curd


  • Mix all the ingredients, except oil, to a thick pouring consistency, adding little water only if required.
  • Leave to rest for 15-20 minutes. Heat a tbsp or so of ghee/butter in a frying pan, then pour it off into a container.
  • Keeping the heat high, pour some batter in the center of the pan, spreading it out a little. Lower the heat and let cook till the edges brown a little and can be lifted easily.
  • Dribble a little ghee/butter around it, turning the pan so the ghee/butter goes under the cheela.
  • Flip it over to cook slightly on the other side and before serving it hot with a green chutney.
