How to make Italian Oats Cheela Stuffed With Spinach And Paneer

  • To begin making the Cheela, in a mixing bowl combine the flour and oats, add a little water at a time to make a semi thick batter. The batter should be the consistency of the dosa batter so you can spread it easily on the tawa. Keep this aside
  • The next step is to prepare the filling
  • Heat oil in a wok over medium heat. Add the chopped spinach, sprinkle some salt and sauté until the spinach wilts down and all the moisture is evaporated
  • Once the moisture is evaporated, add the crumbled paneer, cumin powder and chili powder and salt to taste
  • Stir-fry for a few minutes and turn off the heat. Keep this aside
  • Preheat a skillet/ dosa tawa over medium heat
  • Pour a ladleful of the cheela batter over the tawa and spread in a circular motion to make a thin crepe/ cheela. Drizzle 1/4 teaspoon of oil around the cheela and cook it on both sides by flipping over, until it turns lightly golden and crisp
  • Once done, remove from the skillet and place it on a platter. Place the filling in the center of the cheela and fold it in half and serve
  • Proceed the same way with the remaining cheela batter
  • Serve the cheelas along with tomato basil sauce for dinner or a tea time snack
