MIX DALS & FLAX SEEDS CHEELA / PANCAKE


A very healthy option for breakfast. Savoury pancake made with soaked and ground lentils and I have added flax seed powder as it has lot of health benefits.

Ingredients:
Chana dal ......... handful
Moong dal ....... handful
Toor dal ......... handful
Onion ............ 1 finely chopped
Green chillies .. 1-2 finely chopped
Roasted and crushed flax seeds.... 2 tbsps
Coriander leaves ................ finely chopped
Baking soda........... a pinch
Cumin seeds ........ 1 tsp.
Flax seeds .... 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder ... 1/4 tsp.
Red chilli powder ... 1/2 tsp.
Salt ................... to taste
Oil

Method:
1. Soak all the lentils for 1 or 2 hours. Grind them to a coarse paste.

.
2. Dry roast and grind the flax seeds coarsely.

3. Mix the chopped onion, coriander leaves, green chillies, flax seeds, salt, baking soda, turmeric powder, red chilli powder and cumin seeds. Add enough water to make it into a spreading consistency.

4. On a griddle, pour the batter and spread it out with the spoon. Add a little oil or ghee while roasting.
5. Serve hot.
This is a very healthy breakfast/snack .. contains proteins (lentils) and flax seeds.

  16. This looks great! I love that its gluten free and vegan!
    Can you help me out here- I'm not Indian, so these different names of lentils is getting me confused. Can you translate these ones:
    Chana dal, Moong dal, and Toor dal? I went to a store yesterday that sold indian ingredients but the sales person there didn't know anything about lentils to be able to tell me what was what...
