  4. Divide the batter into 4 equal portions and keep aside.

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.
