Wheat Jaggery Chilla/Pudla

Hey guys!! The recipe I am posting today is that of whole wheat flour jaggery chilla/pudla. Pudla is basically is a type of dosa or pancake. This pudla is sweet in taste because of use of jaggery. This pudla can be made very easily using simple ingredients and is best for a light dinner or breakfast. The only pre-preparation required is the soaking of jaggery in water for a few hours. This tastes great with spicy green chilli-coriander chutney and we gujratis love our farsan so pair it with your favorite ghatia (in my case it is papdi) and some green chillies. So lets get cooking this simple and easy pudla recipe.



Whole wheat flour – 2 cups

Jaggery (roughly chopped)- 250 grams

Water – 3 cups (if needed add more 1 cup)

Salt – 1/2 tsp

Ghee/Clarified Butter

Oil for greasing


1) In a bowl take the jaggery and soak it in 2 cups of water till it completely dissolves (this will take around 2 hours).

2) Once the jaggery has completely dissolved add in the wheat flour and salt and mix it well till the entire wheat flour has dissolved without lumps. Add the remaining water and mix it well. The batter should be loose and flowly. Let it rest for 5 minutes. If needed add the remaining 1 cup after 5 minutes. The batter has to be loose or else will not spread properly.

3) Take a non stick tawa and let it become a little warm on low flame. Now spread the batter of the pudla using a laddle and grease it from all sides with oil. Let it cook from one side on medium flame. Apply oil on the upper side and flip and cook it. Once done apply some ghee/clarified butter on top and serve hot with spicy green chutney.

Notes: You have to serve this hot or else it will become hard and chewy. Do not spread on high flame or else it will tear. Keep the temperature of the tawa maintained by sprinkling some water in between. Cook it on medium flame and not on slow flame or else it will remain uncooked.
