  • Bottlegourd (gheeya) - 1 medium sized (grated)
  • Besan - 4-5 tablespoons
  • Sooji - 1 tablespoon
  • Green chillies (chopped) - 1-2
  • Fresh coriander (chopped) - 1 tablespoon
  • Red chilli powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ajwain - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Garam masala powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Salt - 1/2 - 1 teaspoon (adjust according to taste)
  • Oil
  • In a bowl, add grated bottlegourd, besan and sooji and mix well.
  • Bottlegourd has its own water so the mixture will get mixed.
  • Now, add chopped green chillies and a little quantity of water and make a thick batter.
  • Now, add more water to make a slightly thinner batter.
  • Now, heat a tawa with 2 teaspoons of oil.
  • Keep it on high flame.
  • Spread 2 tablespoons of the batter prepared on this hot oil.
  • Now, drop 2 teaspoons of oil on the sides of this half cooked pancake so that it gets released from the bottom. Keep the flame high.
  • When it appears to be cooked from the lower side, lower the flame slightly.
  • Once when it releases from the bottom, turn it upside down.
  • Now again put 1 teaspoon of oil on the sides and turn upside down.

  • Keep turning it upside down till it is well cooked from both the sides.

  • Take it off the flame.
  • Bottlegourd pancakes are ready to serve.
