Put the flour in a bowl. Add salt, turmeric, soda, cumin seed, yogurt and enough water to make a slightly thick batter. Stir in the chopped onion, green chili, tomatoes and coriander. Heat a nonstick pancake pan. Pour in a little of batter. Spreading it to cover the base completely and make a thin pancake.
