(toddler friendly} Egg & besan cheela

I know that all moms, including myself, struggle with innovative and healthy recipe ideas. We all sometimes give in to unhealthier snacks just so that the little ones would eat something! Samar loves besan cheela and this recipe amps up the traditional cheela into a super snack/or meal. Also, for the kids who are fussy egg-eaters, you can add one full egg to this recipe if you wish. You can also add 3-4 diced broccoli florets, 1/2 a diced potato or 4-5 chopped beans to this recipe.

Shopping list:

  • 1 diced tomato
  • 1/2 diced zucchini
  • 1/2 cup besan/gram flour
  • 1 egg {optional}
  • Water {as per consistency desired}
  • Salt to taste


  1. Mix water and besan together. Start by adding only half cup of water and increase according to the consistency desired. One the mix is ready, add eggs and vegetables. Season with salt.
  2. Oil a flat non-stick pan with 1 tsp oil. Fill a deep spoon to the brim and spread evenly starting from the centre of the cheela, in a clock wise direction.
  3. Turn the cheela on both sides to ensure it’s cooked properly. You can cut the cheela in shapes of your choice!
