How about starting your day with some healthy stuff? So here are some mixed dal cheela for you where I threw in some mint leaves for some lingering aroma. I also added flaxseed and nigella seeds. You may omit it if you please. Serve these nutritious crepes along with some homemade chutney or pickles. They may also be had as a snack, as a light meal or packed for lunch.
- 1/2 cup mixed lentils, soaked overnight
- handful of mint leaves
- salt to taste
- pinch of turmeric powder
- 1 tsp. roasted coriander-cumin powder
- 1-2 green chilies
- 1" ginger
- 1 tsp. flax seed
- 1 tsp. nigella seeds (kalonji)
- oil to shallow fry
Blend all the above mentioned ingredients (except oil, flaxseed & kalonji) along with some water into a smooth batter. Adjust water to make it of a pouring consistency.
Add the flaxseed and kalonji and stir well. Heat a nonstick pan and pour a ladleful of the batter.
With the back of the ladle spread it into a round disc. Drizzle some oil around the edges and cook on a medium flame till it turns light brown.
Gently flip it over and cook the other side too. Transfer to a serving plate. Make similar crepes with the remaining batter and serve with any chutney or pickle.
