Chila is a sumptuous pancake made with flours or lentils. There are quick and elaborate versions, light and heavy ones, which can be served for Breakfast or even brunch.
In this creation, wholesome moong dal chilas are stuffed with a perfectly spiced potato mixture. Although it sounds elaborate, the Moong Dal and Potato Rolls are actually easy to prepare. You just need to plan earlier and soak the dal.
When kids come home hungry serve these rolls with a glass of Fruity Orange Drink or Apple Lemon Fizz .
