Besan ka puda (or besan ka chila) is a savoury pancake popular in Punjab, North India. It is a type of dosa (pancake) and is pure comfort food. It can be prepared in many ways, the below are only guidelines, so feel free to improvise, add or remove ingredients and spices - it's hard to go wrong with the pudas!
Mix all ingredients well until there are no lumps.
Set a non-stick pan to medium-low heat. Drizzle some oil.
Once the pan is hot enough (you can test by adding a drop of dough and watching if it cooks immediately), add a generous scoop of the puda dough. Then quickly spread the dough by lifting and tilting the pan in a circular movement.
Cook on one side for 2-3 minutes or until the edges are cooked. Flip and cook on the other side. Add the rest of the dough and repeat the process.
Serve with extra chopped cilantro, a blop of yoghurt or any preferred sauce.
