Bathua-Besan Cheelas (Baby Spinach – Chickpea Crepes)

This is another favorite savory crepe recipe. Hope you have seen my Chickpea-Oats Crepes and Mix Lentil Crepes recipes. Similar to the other two, these are simple and easy to make plus they pack in so much flavor. I wrapped them to keep the stuffing intact and take them on the go and eat whenever I could spare a moment in the day.
