Sooji ka cheela is an appetizing Indian recipe very famous among vegetarians. It looks almost like a dosa and is crispy yet scrumptious.

This cheela is eaten as main course with chutney and sauce. It can be easily made on your regular tawa or dosa pan. The sooji ka cheela, as the name says, is made up of sooji, also called as rawa.
