Bread Besan Chilla

Hey friends!! The recipe I am posting today is a famous street food here in Mumbai. Instead of having regular besan chillas we make it with bread and serve it piping hot with tomato ketchup and green chutney. It is made using the simplest of ingredients and if you are bored of having the regular chillas this is a must try and have it for breakfast. It does not require too much of time and is very easy to make. So lets get cooking…


Gram Flour/ Besan flour – 1 cup

Rava/Semolina – 1/4 cup

Onion – 1 large sized

Capsicum – 1 medium sized

Tomato -1 small sized

Grated Bottle Gourd/Dudhi – 1/2 cup

Ginger-Garlic-Green Chilli Paste – 2 tbsp

Garam Masala – 1 tsp

Haldi/Turmeric Powder – 1/2 tsp

Jeera/Cumin Powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Asafoetida/Hing- 1/4 tsp

Powdered Sugar – 1/2 tsp

Salt as per taste

Kashmiri red chilli powder -2 tsp

Water –  approx 1 cup

Bread 5 slices



1) In a mixing bowl take the besan flour, rava, salt, garam masala, haldi powder, jeera powder, coriander powder, hing and powdered sugar and mix it well.

2) Now add 1 cup water and make it into a thick batter. Now chop the onions, capsicum and tomato and add it into the batter. Finally add the grated dudhi, giner-garlic-green chilli paste and add some more water to make the batter a little thin. Do not make the batter into a pouring consistency. It should be little thick so as to coat the bread properly.

3) Now dip the bread slice into the batter and coat it completely with the batter using a spoon. Take a non stick pan and brush some butter in it. Place the coated bread slice once warm and brush some more butter from sides. Let it become golden brown from side. Once done using a spoon add little batter on the other side and flip the bread. Again brush some butter from sides and let the other side also cook till golden brown.

4) Serve hot with chutney and tomato ketchup.
