Stuffed Green Gram Cheela With Bengal Gram And Onion Chutney

STUFFED GREEN GRAM CHEELA WITH BENGAL GRAM AND ONION CHUTNEY

Hello, and welcome to my cooking corner again. Today I am sharing a recipe of Green Gram Cheela with a potato and panir filling served with Bengal gram or chanadal-onion chutney. We usually make different kinds of cheelas which are a healthier option for breakfast. Some people like besan cheela, dal cheela and many more as they taste good and they are not fried. Today I have tried to make cheelas from green gram served along with a spicy potato and panir filling. It is tastier, healthier as is shallow fried and is a good option for breakfast or brunch. I tried it in my kitchen and everyone liked it in my family. I hope you guys will like it too. So let’s start with the making—

Ingredients for the green gram cheela:

  1. Green Gram-250 gms
  2. Ginger-1 tsp
  3. Cumin-A pinch(1/4 tsp)
  4. Green Chillies-2

For the stuffing:

  2. Peanuts-A few
  3. Onion-1
  4. Turmeric Powder-1 tsp
  5. Red Chilly Powder-1 tsp

For the stuffing boil potatoes, peel and chop them in small cubes. Cut panir in small cubes. Chop the onions finely. Now take a pan. Add all the tempering ingredients mentioned. Then add peanuts and fry for a minute. Add chopped onions, salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, and garam masala. Fry everything for two minutes till the rawness disappears. Now when the batter is ready, mix in the panir cubes. When the batter cools down, add a dash of fresh lime juice to enhance the taste.

STEP 3

Now pour a ladle of the green gram batter in the pan. Spread it evenly like a dosa and let it simmer on medium flame. Add oil to make it slightly crispy. Take it out when cooked on both sides and slightly browned.

STEP 4

Now take a plate. Put the cheela in it. Fill the potato batter in the cheela and grate some cheese over it though it is optional. Fold it as shown in the picture. Our Stuffed Green Gram Cheela is done. Serve hot with chanadal-onion chutney. Now let’s move over to prepare our chutney.
