This Matar Cheela is a nutritious, protein-packed savoury breakfast option. It comes together really easily and makes for a tasty, filling breakfast.



  • ½ cup besan
  • ½ cup matar (peas) puree
  • ¼ cup rice flour
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • Water, as needed
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp red chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp any neutral oil


  1. In a big bowl, add and mix besan, rice flour, matar (peas) puree, and grated ginger. You can make peas puree by blending boiled (and then cooled) peas.
  2. Add salt, red chilli powder, and cumin powder. Then, add little by little water (2 tbsp at one time) and mix to make a batter with a thick pouring consistency.
  3. On a non-stick flat pan, spread the batter gently using the back of a ladle or jut a spatula in a round shape. Let it cook on a medium-low flame for around 4 minutes or when the top of the cheela looks cooked.
  4. Drizzle some oil on the edges and start scrapping off from edges when the base cooks properly and turns a little brownish. Flip and cook for 2 more minutes.
