These thin, savoury pancakes are so tasty you will love to snack on them any time; at the same time they are so satiating that you can even have them for breakfast.
Made with a batter of mixed dals perked up with ginger, green chillies and other ingredients, the Mixed Dal Chila is both tasty and filling.
At the same time, it is also easy to make. It requires only an hour of soaking and no fermentation, so you can make it any time you wish. Just make sure you serve the chilas immediately after preparation as they tend to get chewy on cooling. Relish them hot with green chutney.
