Besan Ka Cheela

Healthy and filling! This is what defines Besan Ka Cheela. The MRS. wanted to experiment with besan (gram flour) and upon a little search on the internet, found this dish. Tweaking it to fit her taste buds, it turned out beautifully.We paired it with our Laal (Red) Chutney. Although, we have a feeling, it’ll go well with some veggie dish as well.


  1. Besan/ gram flour – 1 cup
  2. Salt to taste
  3. Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  4. Ginger-garlic paste – 1/2 tsp
  5. Green chilli – 1
  6. Water – 1 cup (or as needed)
  7. Onion – 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
  8. Spinach – 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
  9. Oil – 1/4 cup


  • In a large bowl, add besan/ gram flour, salt, and red chilli powder. Mix until well combined.
  • Add finely chopped green chilli and ginger-garlic paste. Mix.
  • Now gradually add water and stir until there is a runny consistency without any lumps.
  • Incorporate onion and spinach.* Mix.
  • In case the batter thickens, add more water.
  • Heat a non-stick, flat pan over medium low heat.
  • Pour the batter in and thin it out. Cook until both sides are golden.
