Main Ingredients

Gram Flour

Carom Seeds

Green Chili Pepper


Red Onion


Cilantro Leaves

Ground Turmeric

Step 1

In a large bowl, add besan, ajwain, green chili, ginger, onion, tomato, cilantro, salt, turmeric and red chili powder.

Step 2

Add water little at a time while whisking to form a medium thick batter. Make sure the batter is not too thick or too runny, it should have a pouring consistency.

Step 3

Using the same ladle, spread the batter on the tala in a circular motion to make a round chilla. Heat a iron skillet or non-stick pan on medium heat. Once the skillet is hot, take a ladle full of the batter, and pour it at the center of the pan.

Step 4

Drizzle some oil at the edges of the chilla and at the center on the top. Total of about ¾ to 1 teaspoon.

Step 5

Cook the chilla on one side for a couple of minutes, then flip it using a spatula. You should see some golden spots on the top of the chilla after it was flipped.

Step 6

Now press with the spatula and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes. When the chilla is well cooked on both sides, remove to a plate. Same way make all the chilla's.

Step 7

Serve besan chilla right way with chutney or tomato ketchup, and a cup of chai!

 And it's ready!
