These gram flour crepes (besan chilla) are a hot favourite in most desi households.
For breakfast, teatime or even as a dinner side dish these crepes are delicious and soo easy to make.
They can be made in quantity and frozen if one is into making and freezing food.
I am often asked what to make with gram flour so this is a good option.
You can even make them plain and then fill them with a nice filling.
I just made them simply but i will give you all the options.
2 big spoonfulls of gram flour(besan)
a little chopped onion, fresh coriander and green chilli
1/2 teaspoon each of cumin and carom seeds(ajwain)
salt to taste
water to make a paste
Mix all the ingredients and make sure the batter has no lumps. Please see the attached video.
OPTIONS: you can also add grated vegetables such as carrots, courgette(zuchini/turai) capsium, grated cauliflower or finely chopped cabbage.
Benefits of gram flour:
Gram flour contains a high proportion of carbohydrates but no gluten. Despite this, in comparison to other flours, it has a relatively high proportion of protein.
For a jain version just omit the onion and proceed
