According to me aayte is just another variation of ghavne. So I was not going to post it. But then I changed my mind! :-D

Rice flour-urad flour pancake
1 cup urad flour
1 cup rice flour
3 cups water (You will need more!)
1/2 tsp fenugreek powder
salt to taste

Mix in the batter
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup minced tomato (remove seeds & pulp)
1-2 green chilies, minced (per required heat)
2 tbsp minced cilantro/coriander leaves

oil for roasting

1. Mix flours, salt and fenugreek powder.
2. While whisking the mixture with a fork, add water in a single stream.
3. As you get thick paste, keep on stirring so there are no lumps.
4. You will probably need to add up to 1 more cup of water but add 1/4 cup at a time so the mixture is not too watery.
5. Cover and set aside for 1/2 hour.
6. Heat a cast iron griddle/tawa.
7. Stir in veggies in the batter. Adjust for the consistency.
8. As the tawa get hot,pour the batter so you see many lacelike holes.
9. Drizzle oil as needed.
10. Cover and let it cook on a medium flame.
11. As the pancake is cooked, fold it in a triangular shape and serve hot with chutney of your choice.

Note -
1. Nonstick pan can also be used.
2. The pan should be very hot to get the lace-like holes.
3. Batter should not be too thick.
