Savory Pancake (Chilka)

Its hard to get up in the morning and think of making something new for breakfast everyday. Something which should be easy, simple, quick, hassle-free and should be tasty at the same time. OMG!! So many adjectives at one go….is it possible??. Yes it is. So here is a recipe which will fulfill our wish.


  • Wheat flour – 3/4 cup
  • Besan – 1/4 cup
  • Ginger (grated) – 1tsp
  • Onion (chopped) – 1 (medium size)
  • Carrot (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup
  • Red bell peppers (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup
  • Coriander leaves (finely chopped) – 1/4 cup
  • Chopped green chili – 2-3
  • Ajwain (Carom seeds) – 1tsp
  • Cumin (Jeera) powder – 1tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1tsp
  • Vegetable oil – 1tbsp
  • Salt – 2tsp
  • Water – 1cup (as required to make a thick batter)


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and make a thick batter.

2. Heat a non-stick tawa on a medium heat . Grease it with a little bit of oil. Take some batter and spread it evenly into a round shape.

3. Let it cook for 2 minutes on medium heat. Pour a little bit of oil around the pancake. Once the bottom is cooked, flip over and cook the other side for another 1-2 minutes or till both the sides are done.

4. Likewise, prepare the rest of the pancakes with the remaining batter.
