“Besan Ka Cheela” -- One more easy breakfast recipe which is served in my household on weekends. I would say it does not top the list though, for sunday breakfast as “POHA” takes its place. But this is prepared definitely on a regular basis on weekends. Besan ka cheela can be served as an evening  snack too and provides a lot of carbohydrates to keep you going.
