Breakfast literally means ‘breaking the fast’; it is one of the most important meals of the day. Breakfast to our body is like petrol to car. It helps us to move ahead and deal with the hectic schedule of the rest of the day. However, most of us tend to skip this most important meal of the day due to rush during the mornings. This is where quick and easy meal recipes come to rescue. But, you need to make sure that these recipes provide proper nutrition to your body, especially protein.
Good amount of protein intake is considered important for a healthy body, because it provides strength to the muscles and energy to the body. It also helps you keep full for a longer time. Hence, experts always recommend having good amount of protein in the breakfast for weight management and overall healthy body.
Keeping this in mind here we bring you an easy cheela recipe, which, instead of besan, is made with sooji and to make it protein-packed, we added buckwheat flour (kuttu ka atta) and eggs to it.
Here’s The Recipe For Protein-Packed Sooji Cheela-
Sooji (semolina)- One cup
Kuttu ka atta (buckwheat flour)- Half cup
Tomato- two tablespoons (chopped)
Onion- two tablespoons (chopped)
Green chilli- one teaspoon (finely chopped)
Ginger- one teaspoon (grated)
Water- one cup
Oil/ghee- as per the need
Salt- to taste
Black pepper- to taste
Sugar- to taste
Dry mix the sooji and kuttu ka atta well.
Break the eggs in the mix and combine well.
Now add onion, ginger, green chilli, tomato, salt, sugar and black pepper to the mix and some water to get a dosa batter-like consistency.
Place a tawa on oven on medium flame and grease the tawa with oil or ghee.
Now put a ladle-full of batter on the tawa and spread well and let it cook on low flame.
Flip the cheela after four to five minutes and let the other side cook.
Once both the sides are well cooked, take it on a plate.
Remember, you can replace kuttu ka atta with normal gehun ka atta (whole wheat flour) as the latter too is a rich source of dietary fibre and protein.
Enjoy the protein-rich sooji cheela with chutney or ketchup and a hot cup of tea!
