How to make Sooji Cheela:

  2. Add water and again mix well. Keep aside for 15 mins so that sooji is soaked properly
  3. Now add chopped veggies – onions, tomatoes and capsicum. Mix well
  4. Add black pepper powder and salt. Mix well to make a smooth batter. If you feel like adding more water, you can add another 1/4 cup (it depends upon the quality of the sooji)
  5. Heat a non stick tawa. Spray olive oil (or add a few drops)
  6. Spread a ladle full of batter on the tawa and make a circle. Make sure it doesn’t break
  7. Cook on medium flame. Once it’s golden-brown flip and cook the other side for another 2-3 mins on medium flame
  8. Your Sooji Cheela is ready to serve
  9. Serve with Tomato Ketchup or your favorite chutney.
