Stuffed Paneer Cheela (Crepe) Sandwich

          Here is an unusual way of serving your normal everyday cheela / pancake. Add some paneer stuffing and then grill on an open flame or in any sandwich maker. Healthy, wholesome and yummy, they are an ideal breakfast or brunch recipe. I have also added some mixed millets to make them more nutritious. 

          Enjoy along with tomato ketchup or any homemade chutney. You may relish as a tea-time snack, meal on the go, after school snack or as a lunch box meal. Choice is yours. Any other stuffing of your choice and / or cheese may be added.

Stuffing -  
  • 100 gms. paneer, mashed
  • 1 small potato, boiled & mashed 
  • 2 tbsp. fried onions
  • 1-2 green chilies, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 4-5 tbsp. coloured bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 tsp. sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • pinch of pepper powder
Cheela - 
  • 1 tbsp. each of masoor, chana, urad, moong and tuvar dal
  • 1 tbsp. each of foxtail, kodo & little millet
  • 1 tsp. ginger-garlic, grated
  • 2 green chilies, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder 
  • oil to shallow fry
Sandwich - 
  • butter as required

        Stuffing - In a bowl. mix together all the ingredients and keep aside. 

        Cheela - Soak the lentils and the milles in sufficient water for 5-6 hours. Grind along with some water to a smooth paste. Add rest of the ingredients and keep aside. 

        Heat a non-stick tawa and brush with some oil. Pour a ladleful of the batter and spread it around into a circle. 

        Drizzle some oil on the edges and cook on a low flame on both sides till light brown in colour. Transfer to a plate. Make similar cheela with the remaining batter.

        Sandwich - Grease a open flame sandwich maker and place one cheela. Put some of the stuffing in the centre and cover with another cheela. 

        Close and grill on an open flame for 2 minutes on each side or till done. Allow it to cool before demoulding it. Make similar sandwiches and serve with some tomato sauce or any homemade chutney.
