To Prepare Cheela Batter

  1. In a bowl combine the flour, oats and grated carrot. Adding little water at a time, make a semi thick batter. The batter should be the consistency of dosa batter so you can spread it easily on the tawa. Keep this aside.

To Prepare Filling

  1. Heat oil in a wok on medium heat. Add the chopped spinach, sprinkle some salt and sauté until the spinach wilts down and all the moisture is evaporated. Once the moisture has evaporated, add the crumbled paneer, cumin powder and chili powder and salt to taste. Stir fry for a few minutes and turn off the heat. Keep this aside.

To Prepare The Cheela

  1. Preheat a skillet/ dosa tawa over medium heat. Pour a ladleful of the oats cheela batter over the tawa and spread in a circular motion to make a thin crepe/ cheela. Drizzle a little oil around the cheela and cook it on both sides by flipping in between. Cook till the cheela turns lightgolden and crispy.
  2. Once done, remove from the skillet and place it on a plate. Place the spinach and paneer filling in the center of the cheela and fold it in half and serve warm. Prepare the rest of the cheelas the same way.

Paneer is a good source of protein especially for vegetarians who do not get their intake from meat products. 100g of paneer yields about 18g of protein which is good for people who weight train as they need protein for muscle building and repair. Cottage cheese contains all the essential amino acids needed for it to qualify as a complete protein. Eat cottage cheese, and you’ll boost your intake of calcium and selenium.

A single serving of either full-fat or low-fat cottage cheese provides all the selenium you need in a day. This selenium fights the aging process due to its antioxidant function, and it also supports immune system function. In addition, cottage cheese contains calcium, an important component of healthy bone tissue.

Oats Cheela is made from whole-wheat flour and delicately flavored with Italian oats. The stuffing of spinach and paneer makes it nutritious and rich in protein.
