CHICKPEA FLOUR WAFFLES/BESAN KA CHEELA

CHICKPEA FLOUR WAFFLES/BESAN KA CHEELA
Chickpea flour/Gram flour/Besan flour, made from chickpeas, is a wheat-free product rich in fiber,nutrients n protein.For those who want to avoid gluten completely, or want to lose weight too, besan flour would be best to have.
Since besan has low glycemic index, the calorie count would be low too.
I was given this Besan Cheela diet by my dietician. N believe me I was surprised to know that Besan is a very good source of protein so apt for vegetarians like me.
I prefer Making Besan Cheela with lots of green vegetables.
 Today I tried to gave a new avatar to age old Cheelas n instead turned them in Continental dish Waffles.
How the shape or the serving style changes the taste, this one dish proves it to the best of example.
 I am sure everyone will love to eat this nutritious and tasty hot served dish.
Easy peasy to make.
But High on taste n health๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ’ช

You can make these in two ways:

Heat a non-stick- tawa or heavy bottom frying pan, then turn the heat on medium. Put little oil on tawa (1/4th tsp) n spread 1 serving spoonful of batter evenly on it.( If you are using non- stick tawa then no need to put any oil, just grease the tawa).
 
Let it cook on medium heat.
 
Turn it n cook on other side also.
 
Let it be brown & crispy from both sides.
 
Repeat the same with rest of the batter.
