U.P. wala Teekha cheela! (Spicy cabbage n cucumber pancake)

I love winters a lot! It is my favorite cooking season. I stay in kitchen for cooking so that I can keep myself warm cozy near the gas stove. Heeeee Heeee Heeeee.😂
This is again my favorite recipe. I keep experimenting with besan to make crispy and tasty versions of besan ke cheele. 
So here is a very spicy recipe of cheela. One request to you all.
If you do not like very spicy food then pls do not make it because it contains cabbage and cucumber which requires spiciness to remove the basic pungent flavor of both veggies.

1 Cup Besan (Chickpea flour)
1/2 Cup Suji (Semolina)

1 Cup peeled n grated red onion
