Cooking time
30 min


    • 1 cups whole wheat flour
    • 40 grams Italian oats


    For Stuffing


    • 200 grams spinach, finely chopped
    • 100 grams paneer, grated
    • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
    • salt to taste
    • 1 teaspoon oil

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
