Lucious Besan Chilla On Plate  | Mohit Bansal Chandigarh

Indian savoury pancakes called besan chilla or besan cheela are cooked with nutty gram flour, sweet onions, tart tomatoes, and aromatic spices and herbs. To make your meal more nutrient-dense and to serve as a quick breakfast, brunch, or even a late-night snack, add your favourite shredded veggies to the batter.  

There are many different ways to create chilla in Indian cuisine. In various regions of India, chilla is also known to as “puda” or “pudla.”

Gram flour, which is just ground black chickpeas without the husks or skins, is used to make the savoury variation known as besan chilla.

Besan is gram flour and chilla is a pancake in Hindi. You can see that the phrase “besan chilla” literally means “gram flour pancake.”

Besan Chilla can be made either crunchy or soft. You obtain a silky chilla if you spread the batter thinly. You can create crispy besan chilla by making a somewhat thin batter and spreading it out evenly. Making the chilla crisp also involves adding extra oil.


Uttampam On Banana Leave  | Mohit Bansal Chandigarh

You may also use rice flour in place of sooji to make these uttapams gluten-free. As a garnish for the uttapams, use vegetables like onion, bell pepper, and tomatoes. Even grated carrots and beets are acceptable additions. You can make them plain if you don’t have any vegetables. However, the taste is great with vegetables on top.

Put 12 cups of quick-cooking oats in a blender or food processor. Even a half cup of rolled oats is OK. To get fine flour, grind the oats. then place the flour made from ground oats in a mixing basin. Add 1/4 cup Rava (cream of wheat or sooji) and 1/4 cup besan at this time (gram flour). As desired, add salt. Pour 2 to 3 cups of water. Make a smooth mixture with no lumps by mixing thoroughly. Oats, rava, and besan flour should soak in water for 20 minutes in a covered basin. Meanwhile, finely slice one onion, one bell pepper, and one tomato. Additionally, mince some coriander leaves and one green chile. Mix everything together on the same cutting board or tray and set aside. The batter will thicken after 20 minutes as the oats, besan, and sooji absorb water. The batter had somewhat thickened, so add an additional 1/4 cup of water. I put 2 3 cups of water before soaking, and then I added 1 4 cups more. The quality of the oats, besan, and sooji will determine how much water to add. If the batter is too thick, extra water can be added.
