Chila – The amazing Indian breakfast pancake!

Chila are Indian savoury pancakes. You can make them either with milled flours or with ground dals. They are nutritious and can be fortified with the addition of vegetables or paneer. A dash of spices enhances the taste greatly! Some chila batters require fermenting while others can be created instantly just by mixing together ingredients. Chila can be eaten anytime of the day- be it breakfast, lunch or dinner ! You can serve them along with chutney or ketchup.
