Moong Dal Chilla/Dosa

recipe photo

This is one is kinda staple Gluten free breakfast in our house. Everyone loves the taste plus so easy to pull of. Can be a great alternative for your roti sometimes if you looking for a high protein diet depending upon your daily protein requirement.
Green moong is a great source of protein, vitamin B, folate, magnesium & quite low on glycemic index (GI) and great fiber content! You can serve it with homemade coconut chutneys, tahini, or a simple fresh mint or coriander chutney. I also love guacamole with it, tastes super delicious you have to try it!

Pro tip:
-Soak the moong dal for minimum 2-3 hrs. Do not add too much water while grinding soaked moong dal for making cheela batter.
-Spread the batter thinly and evenly to make crisper cheela
-Keeping the heat at medium and covering them with lid ensures proper cooking. This way the chilla will cook from within and there will be no raw taste of moong dal.
