Besan Ka Cheela – Quick Breakfast Recipe

Quick Breakfast Recipe 

Prep time – under 5 mins
Cook time – under 10 mins
Yields – 4 small dosas

Ingredients needed 

  • Bengal gram flour/ kadalai mavu/besan -1 cup
  • Onion -1 finely chopped
  • Green chilli -1-2 finely chopped
  • Coriander leaves finely chopped – 2 tbsp
  • Turmeric powder – a pinch
  • Cumin seeds/ jeera -1/2 tsp
  • Salt as needed
  • Cooking soda/ baking powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil for preparing dosas


In a bowl, mix together, besan, onion, green chillies, coriander leaves, turmeric powder, jeera seeds, salt, cooking soda and needed water to make a batter. I added a little more than 1/2 cup of water. The batter should not be too thin nor too thick, so adjust water accordingly. Taste the batter to check for salt.
Heat a non stick tawa, when the tawa is well heated (check it by sprinkling water on the tawa), reduce the flame to medium and pour a ladle of batter and spread it in a circular motion. Drizzle a tsp of oil around the dosa.
When it is cooked, flip it over to the other side. Once the other side is cooked, remove from tawa and serve hot with any chutney of your choice. You can have it with bread like bread and omelet.
