1. We have only added chopped onions to the batter batter, but you may add other veggies like capsicum, peas, carrots and corns.

2. Skip adding green chillies if you are making for children or want to avoid eating spicy. alternatively, you may also add more, if you prefer spicy food.

3. Grate cheese on top and serve.

4. You may season the batter with oregano or any of your favourite seasonings.
