Kheere Ka Cheela(Chilla) Recipe | How to make Cucumber Pancake
Kheere ka chilla(cheela / pancake) is a variety Indian pancake prepared commonly in Indian households. Kheera or Kakdi is a Hindi word for cucumber, which is easily available during summer. This is one of the ways to consume it and beat the heat. It is served as a nutritious breakfast.


Many variations are there of making this chilla. This is how I learned from one of my Maharashtrian room-mate. Instead of one or two type flours, I have used all the flour which are mostly available in the pantry. You can replace them with your choice. Some people use only ginger instead of ginger garlic paste, making it a no onion garlic recipe.
These chillas are soft, so mostly kids will like it. If you want it little crispy, you can add more rice flour or replace it with some other flour.
