Puda | Indian Crepe | Gujarati food

Last week I was in Ahmedabad and I had amazing time eating mom ke haath ka khana :)
I came back yesterday and there weren't any veggies at home but I wanted to eat something healthy after a week of overeating :)
And these Pudas came in handy....These too are made of my favorite handva no lot AKA Kanki kormu!! Don't worry if you don't have it. Read on to get an alternative to it.. Needless to say they are yummy and healthy at the same time!!
Today I had only onions on hand but you can also add any other vegetable you fancy. I often add methi (fenugreek) and grated carrots to the pudas!! The methi pudas featured in my Aathela Marcha (Pickled Pepper post)
Check them out..

1/2 cup Handva no lot (in case you don't have handva no lot handy, you can mix besan (Garbanzo beans flour), rice flour and whole wheat flour to make pudas. Or you can soak the lentils and rice overnight and grind them together next day in a mixer to get batter, in this case reduce the curd to 1 Tablespoon)
1/4 cup curd
1 teaspoon green chili, ginger and garlic paste
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 pinch hing (Asofoetida)
salt to taste
1 small onion
1/4 cup cleaned, chopped and washed fenugreek (optional) or 1/4 cup grated carrot (optional)
 teaspoon oil

1) In a mixing bowl, take all the dry ingredients and vegetables. Mix them well.
2) Now add, vet ingredients and mix well. Add water to get a pancake/ dosa like batter. Let it rest for at least 30 minutes. Sometimes I let it rest for 2-3 hours too, if I have time.
3) Heat a tawa (skillet), grease it with 3-4 drops of oil.
4) Using a ladle pour batter on the tava. Spread it evenly to get circular shape.
5) Let it cook on one side for 30 seconds on medium flame.
6) Using a spatula, flip it. Apply oil on sides.
7) Let it cook on another side for 30 seconds on medium flame.
