I have many food stories and most of them happen when I travel around India and around the world. One of my favorites is Kolkata, where I have many stories to tell. It was the first time I had ever tasted cheela’s that were served with lip smacking garlic chutney and green chutney. The cold nights, along with hot cheela’s and ending it with Shikanji was an all time favorite. 

Serve the Besan Cheela along with a Sweet And Spicy Tomato Chutney and a Dhaniya Pudina Chutney for breakfast, a tea time snack or even weeknight dinner.
