These subtly-flavoured chillas are really trendy because they are easy-to-prepare, tasty and stomach-friendly too, which is a key concern for many people!

These Nutritious Chillas are made with ragi, jowar and whole wheat flour, perked up with just a mild dash of green chilli paste. A good amount of veggies are added to keep the chillas soft and to lend a lovely crunch to them.

You can have these tasteful chillas anytime, for breakfast or as a snack, so you can ward off hunger and associated acidity bouts too.
