Papri or Rice Cheela

this is s typical jharkhandi dish that i learnt to make after my marriage. It is very easy and tastes very nice with potato curry or aloo dum.


Rice: 500 gms (soaked overnight)
Chana Dal: 50 gms( soaked overnight)
Salt to taste
Refined oil or Olive oil to cook


  • Soak rice and chana dal together overnight. 
  • In the morning, drain excess water and blend the two to a coarse paste in the mixer. 
  • Add salt to taste while blending. 
  • If the mixture becomes too fine it will become runny and will be difficult to handle
  • Heat the pan to medium heat. Pour oil and spread on the pan
  • Add a little water to make it to the consistency of dosa batter or just enough that it can be spread easily on the tawa.
  • Spread the mixture on the tawa and wait for 2 minutes for it to get cooked.
  • once done flip it to other side to cook.
  • Do not brown it a lot.
  • papri is ready.
the mixture should make about 12-15 papris.
these are light eats and can be had with chutney as well as curry's.
