- Roast the Mustard seeds with the Cooking Oil until it crackles in a pan at medium flame.
- Then, add the Chana dal and Urad dal to it and roast for 2 minutes. Switch off the flame.
- Add the mixture in the pan to the prepared Sooji Cheela batter. Mix it well.
- Pour the batter (required quantity) over the Dosa Tawa/Crepe pan. Use Cooking Oil (1 tsp) to cook it crispy (I have used Granite Dosa tawa to prepare this). Please, be careful while pouring the batter. The flame should be low else it will be difficult to spread the batter. Try to spread the batter evenly and adjust to a round shape as far as you can.
- After spreading the batter, cook it at medium flame. Cook both sides of the Sooji Cheela until it turns brown. Switch off the flame. Sooji Cheela is ready to serve.
