  • ½ cup: Methi leaves-finely chopped
  • Green chillies-finely chopped to taste
  • 1 tsp: Ajwain
  • 1 tsp: Chilli powder

  1. Mix all the ingredients, except oil, to a thick pouring consistency, adding the water a little at a time . Leave to rest for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Heat a tbsp or so of oil in a frying pan, then pour it off into a container.
  3. Keeping the heat high, pour some batter in the center of the pan, spreading it out a little.
  4. Lower the heat and let cook till the edges brown a little and can be lifted easily.
  5. Dribble a little oil around it, turning the pan so the oil goes under the cheela. Flip it over to cook slightly on the other side and before serving it hot with a green chutney.
