Cheela is a thin, pancake like snack that is very popular in Gujarat and Maharashtra. The Moong Dal Palak Cheela is made of a wholesome batter of moong dal and spinach, perked up with a couple of commonly available spice powders and pastes.

A dash of crushed cumin boosts the aroma and flavour of the cheela further, making it absolutely awesome. Cheelas are meant to be had as soon as they are cooked, to enjoy the slightly-crisp fresh texture, so make sure you relish it right off the tava.
