A rainy day like today calls for some salty pan-cakes made of gram flour. We call them 'chilla' in Hindi and 'dhirdey' in Marathi. A batter of gram flour or besan is readied. We add salt and red chili powder to taste to some gram flour. Add chopped onions and green chillies. Add one table spoon of oil and then add some water to make the consistency liquid enough to be spread like a pan-cake or dosa.
We then proceed to spread the batter on a flat pan called tawa in Hindi. We use a little oil to fry the chilla.
It is then flipped to cook the other side.
Finally, serve it with some amazingly delicious aam ka achaar or mango pickle.
