Check the consistency of the batter for the covering. You may have to add or reduce some water. It should NOT be too thick that it does not spread well on a flat pan and it should NOT be so watery that you cannot control it on a flat pan. The step above may be difficult for those not used to it. So, an easy way around it is given in the pics below the recipe.

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • ½ cup chickpea flour
  • 125 grams cottage choose grated
  • 1 tomato finely cut
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 green chilli finely chopped – Optional
  • Red chilli/ Pepper – Optional
  • Ghee (clarified butter)
Directions
  • Step 1 Mix the rice flour and chickpea flour together in a bowl. Mix with 2 cups of water.
  • Step 2 Add salt to taste, mix well and keep aside.
  • Step 3 Mix the cottage cheese with the tomato and onion. You can add other items to the stuffing also.
  • Step 4 Add salt to taste.
  • Step 5 Add some chilli powder/pepper.
  • Step 6 Mix the whole mixture. Keep Aside.
  • Step 7 Heat a flat pan on low to medium flame. Ensure the pan becomes hot before you pour the oil.
  • Step 8 Pour a bit of the flour mixture over the flat pan and spread into a nice round shape.
  • Step 9 Let the flat cake cook for 45-60 secs. Use a thin spatula to see if the same can be lifted. Pretty much the way we would do with an omelette to see if it’s ready to be flipped. Cook till its ready for a flip.
  • Step 10 Add some of the stuffing in the middle.
  • Step 11 Fold the flat cake over the stuffing to make a semi-circle.
  • Step 12 Flip over a couple of times and cook for a minute.
  • Step 13 Serve on a nice plate with salad and pickles.

Tips

While this is a Chawal puda recipe. It can be made of various ingredients such as Rice Flour, Chickpea Flour etc. We will look at a fusion recipe combining rice and besan ( gram flour) so that we get the nutritional benefit of both the grains.

The stuffing I use is predominantly cottage cheese and vegetables. However, you can also look at meat-based stuffing depending on your diet.

I tend to suggest both cooking oil and ghee in my recipes. I personally prefer Ghee mostly since its healthier and tastier than cooking oil.

Check the consistency of the batter for the covering. You may have to add or reduce some water. It should NOT be too thick that it does not spread well on a flat pan and it should NOT be so watery that you cannot control it on a flat pan.

The step above may be difficult for those not used to it. So, an easy way around it is to take it in a small bowl and pour the liquid on to the pan and use the base to spread it nicely and evenly into a circle. Round circular motion with the bowl is the way to do it. DO NOT USE A PLASTIC BOWL. Pics are given in the section below.
