This recipe is a variation of the traditional cheela with ingredients like besan, badam, paneer, baking powder, ginger and spices.
2 cup gram flour (besan)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon carom seeds
3 tablespoon almond oil
1/2 cup mashed paneer
1 teaspoon roasted cumin seeds
2 teaspoon chopped ginger
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1 chopped green chilli
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
Take a mixing bowl and put besan, salt, ajwain (carom seeds), red chilly powder, baking powder and water to make a thick and smooth batter. Keep it aside.
In a small bowl, mix together paneer, almond, cumin seeds (jeera), green chilli, ginger and coriander leaves nicely for the stuffing.
On medium flame, heat a non-stick pan and drizzle a little oil into it. Pour the batter and spread around evenly to give it a round shape. Allow it to cook nicely from one side and then gently turn it and cook the other side. (Note: Don’t burn any side of the cheela.)
Put the flame to low setting. Now, grab a spoon and take some of the stuffing and put it in the center of the cheela and spread horizontally. Fold the cheela like a dosa and take it off from the pan. Serve hot!
