1- 1 1/2 cup water to make batter
Oil for cooking
Salt to taste

How to make besan ka cheela:

    Put all the ingredients except water in a big bowl.
    Now start adding small quantities of water to make a smooth batter, so that there should be no lumps in it.
    Add water till it comes to a dropping consistency or just like dosa batter. now keep it aside.
    Now heat a non-stick- tawa or heavy bottom frying pan, then turn the heat on medium. put little oil on tawa [1tsp.] & spread 1 serving spoonful of batter evenly on it.
    Cover it with lid just for a minute so that it should cook inside also. then remove lid, put some more oil on the top & turn it upside down.
    Let it be brown & crispy from both sides.
    Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
    Serve hot with green chutney or sauce.
