Tomato cheela


1 medium tomato
2 cups gram flour
Salt to taste
1 green chilli chopped finely
Finely chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder

Cook the tomato pieces in little water for few mins. Cool, grind and strain the puree. Add gram flour, salt, green chillies, coriander leaves, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and garam masala powder. Add a little water as required to get a batter that would be easy to spread on tava.

Heat tava and grease slightly with oil. Spread a ladle of batter using a spoon. Spread a few drops of oil in the sides and cook till golden brown in the base. Turn and cook on other side as well for 2 mins.

Serve hot with chutney of your choice.

I have had apprehensions about the cheela lifting off the pan until I saw your picture. A must try for me. Thanks EC for sharing.

I make it without tomato. Addition of tomato is a good idea, imparts a nice color too.
