Besan chilla is a savory Indian pancake that’s also a lovely tea time snack that’s kid friendly and easy to make.
Besan is also known as Chickpea flour. I use it when making maru bhajia, pancakes, as a thickener and even as a face scrub. I’ll post on that another time. ☺️
Let’s get started.
Add the chopped vegetables and some water till it becomes a smooth lump free batter.
Heat a pan on medium low heat and a little bit of vegetable oil. Ladle the batter and spread carefully once the pan is heated well and let cook till it looks like this below.
It’s now ready. Remove from heat and keep in a hotpot as it should be served warm or hot.
This made ten savoury pancakes (about 5 inch diameter) and they did not last thirty minutes in my household; everybody loved them. If you want a different kind of snack to keep you and the kids sated for a while, try this out.
