Chickpea Flour Pancakes (Besan Chilla/Cheela) - Traditional Pancakes Taken To The Next Level

6

A fantastic savory pancake begging to be eaten with pickles and chutneys or yogurts and cream. East meets West with this beautifully, wonderfully healthy dish.

4
1 cup chickpea flour (or besan/garbanzo flour)
1 cup water
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 spring onions
½ red pepper
2 tbsp olive oil (ghee would be perfect here, but not vegan)
Optional:
½ tsp red chili flakes (I highly recommend this)
You could use up any veggies you want here really - red or white onions, chilies or peas would be awesome here too.
Add the flour, water, turmeric, salt, pepper and chili flakes (if using) to a mixing bowl and give it a quick blend using a fork or an immersion blender Leave it to settle for a few minutes while you heat...
