This dish has always been something i have loved to make as well as eat. yeah....and the reason is its very very simple to make, less time consuming, packed with nutrition and tastes amazing... yes... its very tasty...with loads of vegetables or even without any.
A simple and healthy way to start ur day.
here goes the recipe:
You need :
Besan (Gram flour) - 1 cup
Green chillies - 1 0r 2 (acc. to taste)
Ginger grated - 1 tsp
Buttermilk or curd - 1/2 cup
onions - 1 medium
tomato - 1 big
(I have used cabbage and grated carrot here..... u can use any vegetable to want... chopped finely. Spinach tastes amazing in this..)
Cabbage finely chopped - 1/4 cup
Carrot grated- 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Jeera(cumin seeds) OR ajwain (fennel seeds) - 2 tsp
In a mixing bowl put in all the ingredients, except oil and mix well adding little water and forming into a batter with the consistency of dosa batter.Leave this batter aside for 5-10 minutes.
Now take a non stick tava...( iIsuggest to use a non stick tava... coz putting cabbage makes this a bit soggy.... hence it will be difficult to get it off the normal tava. You can use normal tava if ur making this without cabbage or spring onions.)
Pour this batter in the centre on the tava and spread it into a round like for dosa...... orelse pour the batter in centre and move n twist the griddle to spread the batter.
let it cook on both sides... till nice golden brown in colour and crisp.
Serve hot with Masala dahi and pickle. Even tomato ketchup pairs up good with this. Best to served as a evening snack or morning breakfast.
