Chillas are basically thin pancakes made by spreading batter on a hot tava or griddle. They are popular in North India, especially in Maharashtra and Gujarat. 

Easy batters for Indian chillas 

There are different types of chillas. Some are made with easy and quick batters, which just require you to mix flours and seasonings. The basic Besan Chilla and Rava Chilla are some of the most popular breakfast options in Maharashtra as well as Gujarat.

Alternatively, your chillas can also be more elaborate. You can make chillas with flours of other grains, individually or multiple flours together. You can make Nutritious Chilla with a mix of flours like ragi and jowar. You can also savour the goodness of different millet flours alone as in the Mini Nachni Pancake.

Other Indian Pancakes

Apart from chillas (or chillas), there are several other types of pancakes from other Indian cuisines.

Starting from the Dosai, Adai and Uttappam of South India, to the Tousali that is famous in Karnataka, to the Ghavan and Panki of the North, there are too many options to pick from!

The Methi Ghavan and Thalipeeth are delicious traditional recipes, with a very homely taste and satiating texture, which will comfort our taste buds. The pudla is simply a thicker variant of the chilla but has a different mouth-feel, which makes it feel similar to the South Indian Adai. Try the Methi Pudla , Chola Dal Poodla and the traditional South Indian Adai, to feel the similarity.

The Indian Oats Pancake with Jowar and Oats Adai or Oats Spinach Pancake give a modern twist to traditional recipes, giving you the best of both worlds.
