The Pudla is like a gram flour Dosa made by the Gujaratis. Its usually an instant menu in most households. The picture of the Pudla in my blog is a flatter version as I feel if flat the Pudla gets cooked well and we dont get the raw gram flour smell. But usually the Pudla traditionally is a bit thicker something like our Uttappam.
2 cups – Gram flour (Besan)
1 Onion, very finely chopped
Finely chopped Ginger – 1 tbsp
Finely chopped Green Chilly – 1tbsp
Salt as required
Chilly powder as required
Take a vessel and put the Besan in it. Add 1 cup water and stir to make a smooth batter. Add the salt, chilly powder, onion, ginger, chopped green chillies and finely chopped coriander leaves. Mix well and set aside for 15 minutes.
Take a non stick tava, put one teaspoon of oil and spread it evenly on it. Keep the gas on a low flame. Stir the batter once and pour a ladle full of batter onto the Tava. Either spread it in a round fashion with the ladle as you do for dosa or tilt the pan to spread it (like making a crepe).
Cover and cook for 3 minutes. Turn over and cook, uncovered, until it becomes golden.
Repeat with remaining batter, stirring before using.
Remember that if you are doing the crepe method of tilting the tava. The flame should be low and the tava shouldn’t be very hot so you should keep sprinkling water after every pudla is done.
Enjoy the hot Pudlas with green coriander Chutney or Tomato Sauce.
