(Cheela ka besan) This Indian crêpe-like "pancake" can be used to roll up leftover vegetable curry for a satisfying lunch.



  1. Mix dry ingredients with a whisk to remove lumps.
  2. Add enough water to make a medium-thick batter (not stiff, not runny). The amount of water that you will need depends on the flours that you are using.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients except ghee or oil and mix well.
  4. Let stand for about 15 minutes.
  5. Heat a small amount of ghee or oil in a nonstick crepe pan (or a pan with low sides).
  6. When the pan is hot, pour in about ⅓ cup of batter. Rotate the pan so that the batter spreads out.
  7. Cook for a few minutes before turning the pancake to cook on the other side.
  8. Keep warm in oven until you have used up all the batter.
