Instructions
  1. Start by keeping the vegetables chopped. In a mixing bowl, mix together the chickpea flour, water, and yogurt till no lumps remain. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  2. The batter should be the consistency of a dosa batter, not too thick. Easily pourable.
  3. Now heat a non stick tawa on medium heat. Pour two ladles of the batter on the tawa and quickly spread it in circular motions starting from the centre out, just like a dosa. Pour a little (1 tsp) on the chilla and let it cook well. Carefully loosen the edges and slowly turn it over. Let it cook that side on 2-3 mins till done.
Serving options:
  1. Serve as is hot off the tawa with some pickles and curd. Or serve it stuffed with your favorite stuffing like a burrito. I served it with some cauliflower rice (recipe up soon), fresh figs and pomegranate arils for a burst of sweetness and contrast.

  1. Your photos are stunning! I absolutely can’t wait to make this! My daughter is gluten free and a vegetarian, so I am always looking for recipes that fit all of her requirements. My whole family will love this! I have made Italian chickpea pancakes (socca) and this looks very similar. Isn’t it wonderful to find how ingredients and foods are transformed by different cultures. 🙂

  2. I have been on the hunt for healthy protein-rich, lower carb breakfasts and am so glad that I found this recipe. I LOVE chickpea flower (and it’s high protein content) and I cant wait to make this!
