Crispy and crunchy Besan ka puda – Indian way of making pancakes by combining gram flour with fresh veggies and spices. Besan ka puda also referred to as besan ka cheela/chilla is one of the staple breakfast in many Indian household. I perked up this recipe by adding chopped spinach leaves and shredded carrots to the batter – what a healthy way to start the day. The best part is you can prepare this breakfast under 30 minutes and is quite filling and nutritious.
I can understand with everyone leaving the house at the same time 30 MINUTES for a breakfast seems like an impossible deal. To make this process quick – whisk the batter at night, cover and store in the refrigerator. Repeat the same with the veggies. In the morning just mix everything up and cook – don’t forget to add some water in the batter if it becomes thick and dense overnight. The batter should be of a dropping consistency – not too thick and not too thin. Above picture shows the front and the back side of cooked puda.
Above pudas have been prepared using a round mould. If using a mould follow the step by step recipe below. Since these were the part of my I CARE VALENTINE THEME I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to prepare these cuties. If using no moulds just spread them on a hot griddle and cook until crisp.
