    tips for yellow moong dal paneer pudina chilla


      What is a Chilla?

      1. What is a chilla? Chilla is India’s answer to pancakes. While South India is famous for its innumerable types of dosa, West and North India go with chilla! There are different types of chilla – made with ground pulses, a mix of dry flours, fermented batters as well as quick-fix ones.

        The most common type of chilla is made with besan. Quickly mix besan with a dash of spices, allow it to stand for a few minutes and you are all ready to make a healthy breakfast of hot chillas. You can fortify the Besan Chilla batter with just about anything that is within reach and healthy – grated veggies, crumbled paneer, chopped greens, or whatever!

        The next most common option after Besan Chilla is the Moong Dal Chilla. Here, you soak and grind moong dal with green chillies, jeera etc. to make the batter for a comforting and healthy chilla. The Moong Dal Chilla is believed to be more nutritious yet easier to digest. You can add grated veggies and greens to the batter, or even make a mixed veg or paneer stuffing for the chilla! Try the Stuffed Moong Dal Chilla and Moong Dal and Paneer Phudina Chilla.

        Similarly, you can make chillas with other pulses and flours too, such as the Nutritious Jowar and Tomato Chilla or the High Fibre Chilla that help to keep up your health quotient.

        When you are in a real dash, go for options like the Besan and Green Pea Chilla that can be cooked in a jiffy in the microwave, and when you want to swing your kids in favour of the Indian pancake, go for something interesting like the Mini Green Moong Dal Chilla. Name your need, and there is a chilla to fill the gap! You can even mix-and-match the ingredients available at home and come up with your own exciting combos – right from the batter to the stuffing.

      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.
