1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing)
1/2 tsp sugar
salt to taste

To Be Mixed Into A Topping

1/2 tsp finely chopped green chillies
1/2 tsp chaat masala

  4. Divide the batter into 4 equal portions and keep aside.
  5. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), grease with a little oil, pour a portion of the batter on the tava and spread it evenly to make a 125 mm. (5") diameter round.
  6. Spread a portion of the topping evenly over it and press it gently so the topping sticks to the chila.

Yummy, that is what my guests said when I served Moong Dal and Paner Chila. For a little crunchiness I added finely chopped spring onions with greens to the paneer. Chilas from moong flour are sweeter and tastier, the paneer with the chaat masala gives a nice mild chatpata taste.

Healthy. Great protein booster as both moong dal and paneer have lots of it.
