This recipe has been shared by food blogger Parul on her YouTube channel 'Cook With Parul.' To make this cheela, you would need soaked rice, transfer it to a food processor, and blend until you get a smooth paste. (Add some water along with the rice). Now, transfer the paste to a bowl and keep it aside. Meanwhile, heat some oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, jeera, sesame seeds, chopped ginger, green chillies, and curry leaves.
Mix well and top the rice paste mixture with this tadka. Now, add onions, capsicum, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, and cabbage. Combine everything together and add salt, black pepper powder, and coriander leaves. Heat some oil in a pan set on a low-medium flame. Pour a ladleful of the prepared batter into it and allow it to cook evenly. Flip and cook the other side until done. Serve hot with chutney and enjoy!
