Mini Aloo Cheela/ Potato Pancake

Aloo cheela is one of my favorite breakfast which is quite easy to make.  As only I am vegetarian in my family so mostly I prefer aloo cheela for myself. 

Cheela or chilla is an Indian version of a pancake which is made from various cereals or lentil flours.

I always add aloo or some grated vegetables in my cheela like carrots,  cabbage,  onions or spinach etc.

Today I made my aloo cheela  in mini uttapam pan which is quite easy to make and my mini aloo cheela has turned out to be super delicious. 

Potatoes are prepared in many ways: skin-on or peeled, whole or cut up, we can make it with any green vegetable or any leafy vegetable.  Also make it in various dishes like aloo dum, aloo chokha, aloo paratha, aloo ka halwa and aloo ka bharta etc.

Potato is a root vegetable and the English word potato comes from Spanish, Patata.
Potato are generally grown from seed potatoes.

Potatoes are packed with antioxidants compound that fight free radicals from causing damage to our cells.
