Dal cheela ( from left over dal)

Usually whenever we have dal as left over we end up making dal paranthaa for breakfast. I thought lets be innovative and experiment making cheela's from the leftover dal.  Fortunatley experiment turned out to be a hit and every one was ga ga about the dal cheela's for the breakfast.
A quick recipe of the dal cheela.
