In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cilantro, tomatoes, onion, ginger, garlic, cumin, salt, and turmeric. Mix until well combined.
Pour the water into the dry ingredients, then whisk until you have a smooth batter.
Heat a skillet over medium heat, spray or drizzle a touch of oil, then using a ladle, take a ladleful of batter and pour it into the center of the heated pan. Tilt the pan until the batter covers the bottom of the pan and forms a thin circle.
Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the edges are golden and the bubbles on top of the batter have popped or disappeared. Flip and cook another 2-3 minutes, or until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
