Amp'ed up Pudala (Savory gram flour crepes)




Pudala is a Gujarati savory gram flour crepe. This amp'ed up version does fluff up more like pancake with the onion, tomato added to it. Simple pudala's are made just like dosa's, you take a ladle of batter and spread it outwards. The addition of vegetables makes it difficult to spread. I usually cook it on a 6 inch non stick pan as this lets me make approx round pancakes. I can turn the pan to adjust the batter around the edge. You can add grated carrots, diced bell peppers (capsicum) to the batter too if you like.

Ingredients:

2 cups besan (Gram flour)
1 medium onion finely diced
1 tomato
4 green chilies very finely diced
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoon dhania jeera powder (coriander cumin)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
Salt 
1 1/2 cups water
Oil to cook

Mix all the ingredients above except the oil. The mixture should be of pouring consistency. Heat a non-stick pan or griddle. Use a little oil or non-stick spray on the pan. Pour a ladle of batter on griddle. Cook on one side till it crisps up to be brown and flip. If the edges are stuck, pour a few drops of oil around the edge. Cook it till there is no runny batter and the surface is golden brown. Serve with chutney or chunda.
