This is the very first time I attempted to make chawli & it turned out fabulously delicious. Might garnish with grated coconut next time. Thank you.

This recipe looks very appetising. Yummy and full of nutrition. I keep looking for recipes which have enough iron supplement and thankfully this looks both tasty and healthy and easy to prepare at home. Thanks for posting this wonderful Chawli Bhaji which has no oil!
