Whole Masoor Dal Cheela (Whole Red Lentils Crepes)


          Enjoy some delicious and nutritious Cheelas / Pancakes made out of whole masoor dal (red lentils). I have also added some chopped spring onion and carom (ajwain) seeds for some added flavour. They can be served with chutney, pickle, any side dish and a paneer stuffing which is optional. 

          Masoor Dal is a power house of proteins, iron and fibre. Hence these cheelas are healthy, low in fat and tasty too.. Besides breakfast, they can also be had for lunch / dinner or as a lunch box meal too. So please check for an easy step by step method with pictures to prepare them.





  • 1 cup whole masoor dal (red lentils), soaked overnight
  • 1 cup spring onions chopped
  • 1" ginger
  • 2 green chilies
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1 tsp. coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
  • 1/2 tsp. carrom seeds (ajwain)
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • oil to shallow fry





          Grind the dal along with ginger, green chilies and some water till smooth. Add all the rest of the ingredients (except oil) and mix well. 

          Adjust water accordingly. The batter should be of pouring consistency, just like a dosa batter. Keep aside for 15-20 minutes.

          Heat a non-stick tawa / griddle and drizzle some oil. Sprinkle some water and after it sizzles off, wipe dry with a kitchen towel.

          Now pour a ladleful of the batter and spread into a circle with the back of the ladle. Drizzle some oil around the edges and over the cheela.

          Cook on one side for 2 minutes or till done before flipping it over to be cooked the other side. Transfer to a serving plate. 

          Prepare similar cheelas with the remaining batter and relish with any with any side dish, chutney or pickles.
