Minty Mixed Lentil Crepes / Pancakes / Cheela

          How about starting your day with some healthy stuff? So here are some mixed dal cheela for you where I threw in some mint leaves for some lingering aroma. I also added flaxseed and nigella seeds. You may omit it if you please. Serve these nutritious crepes along with some homemade chutney or pickles. They may also be had as a snack, as a light meal or packed for lunch.

  • 1/2 cup mixed lentils, soaked overnight
  • handful of mint leaves
  • salt to taste
  • pinch of turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. roasted coriander-cumin powder
  • 1-2 green chilies
  • 1" ginger
  • 1 tsp. flax seed
  • 1 tsp. nigella seeds (kalonji)
  • oil to shallow fry

          Blend all the above mentioned ingredients (except oil, flaxseed & kalonji) along with some water into a smooth batter. Adjust water to make it of a pouring consistency.

          Add the flaxseed and kalonji and stir well. Heat a nonstick pan and pour a ladleful of the batter. 

          With the back of the ladle spread it into a round disc. Drizzle some oil around the edges and cook on a medium flame till it turns light brown.

          Gently flip it over and cook the other side too. Transfer to a serving plate. Make similar crepes with the remaining batter and serve with any chutney or pickle.
