Chickpea & Rice Flour Chilla (Savoury Pancakes)

Easy to make with basic ingredients, and a great evening meal in itself.


1 cup chickpea flour

3 tablespoons rice flour

1 chopped onion

2-3 chopped chillies

1/4 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder

1 cup water

Oil for light frying

Salt to tast


Add the chickpea flour, rice flour, turmeric, chilli powder and salt together in a mixing bowl.

Next add the onions and chillies to this mix. You can add finely chopped tomatoes as well.

Whisk all ingredients together to break any flour lumps.

Gradually add water to this mix.

Until you get this consistency.

Heat a pan with a little oil, evenly spread.

Pour in the batter with a ladle and spread it evenly.

Cook on medium flame for a few minutes until the edges leave the pan.

Flip it over and add a little oil around the edges. Press occasionally and let it cook for another few minutes, and they’re ready to be served.
