Gluten Free Besan Cheela/Chickpea Flour Pancake#SundayFunday

I, have made these Gluten Free Besan Cheela/Chickpea Flour Pancake two ways one without cheese and the other with cheese. They both taste good, but, hubby loved the one with cheese. We usually make this for a light dinner with soup or when we have guest for breakfast. This is quick one to make and the best part it that you can add or minus whatever spices or veggies you like a very versatile recipe. You can make this vegan but no adding the yogurt, instead add a pinch of baking soda to get a fully pancake.
Serves 4

2 Cups Besan/Chickpea flour
1 Scallions /Spring Onion- finely chopped.
1 Medium Tomato - finely chopped
•Red Pepper flakes - 1/2 tea spoon.
½ Teaspoon Turmeric powder
¼ Teaspoon Ajwain/Carom Seeds
2 Green Chillies - finely chopped
Butter or Oil as required
Salt to taste
2 Tablespoons Yogurt - optional
2 Tablespoon Finely Chopped Coriander leaves
Grated Cheese - as required

Take a bowl, add chickpea flour, salt, pepper, chopped tomatoes, chopped onions, chopped green chilies, chopped coriander, carom seeds, mix this like a pancake batter. 
Heat a non stick pan with butter, pour the batter like pancake on the heated griddle, cook this both sides. 
Serve hot with sauce or chutney.
For The Cheese Cheela 
Added a little cheese in the batter  
Also spread cheese after flipping and fold.
