How to make Moong Dal Palak Cheela Recipe (Yellow Lentil And Spinach Crepes)

  2. Grind the soaked moong dal adding little water at a time to make a smooth and thick batter. The batter should be of pouring consistency.

  3. Pour the cheela batter into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients except the oil and stir well to combine. Check the salt and adjust to suit your taste.

  4. Heat a skillet on medium heat and grease it with oil. Pour a ladleful full of batter and spread it into a thin crepe. Drizzle some oil around the center and the edges of the Palak Cheela.
