Chila is a fabulous snack, which has withstood the test of time. Normally made with a batter of besan or moong dal, these thin pancakes have a very homely and satisfying taste.
Chilas can also be made of grated purple yam, as in this recipe. Although it uses only basic ingredients, the Kand Chila tastes awesome when had right off the tava with tongue-tickling green chutney.
Some people like to replace the salt with sendha namak and have this Kand Chila on fasting days , as it tastes good and gives enough energy too.
