Next in the Pav Sandwich series is Cheela Pav. The Besan Cheelas taste amazing on their own and in Sindhi families they are a big hit for breakfast. They eat these cheelas with bread or even chapati. I worked on the same concept and sandwiched the cheela in a Pav. A spicy green chutney, some onion rings and tomato slices complete the sandwich, oh yes a dash of Chaat masala. I bet your mouth’s watering !
I have a small rectangular pan and I made the cheelas in that pan, I could just double fold the cheela and it gave a perfect size fit into the Pav. You could even make round ones and fold them and sandwich them in the Pav. This becomes a delicious Desi Burger.
