Is Cheela Good For Breakfast?
Whenever we talk about Indian breakfast options, cheela is one of the first dishes that comes to our mind. It is easy, uncomplicated and needs a handful of ingredients for preparation. Conventionally, cheela is made with besan, which is enriched with several health benefitting properties. Besan (Bengal gram) is packed with protein, vitamin A, K, fibre, calcium, magnesium, potassium and has low glycemic index. It also makes a gluten-free option for all. Besan is considered great for weight loss, helps manage diabetes and more. "Besan is loaded with health benefitting properties. Hence, cheela, made with besan, helps give you a protein-packed start to the day," states consultant nutritionist Rupali Datta."
