GREEN MOONG DAAL CHILLA – YOUR ALLY FOR WEIGHT LOSS! Add variety to your Rotis. Go grain free some days a week. Children love it too. Serve it to them with home-made chutneys

Ingredients
  • Whole green moong dal (Green gram): 1 Cup

  • Water: 3 cups (for soaking)

  • Ginger: ½ inch

  • Garlic: 3-4 cloves (optional)

  • Sendha namak (rock salt): as per taste

  • Green chillies: 1 finely chopped (optional)

  • Green coriander: small bunch

  • Water: as per desired consistency (less than half a cup)

  • Cold pressed mustard/ groundnut oil – only a few drops to grease the tawa

Method
  • Soak the Moong dal (Green gram) in water overnight.
  • Rinse well.
  • Put the lentil, ginger, garlic and water in the blender.
  • Blend till you get a smooth paste. Add only little water as the batter needs to be of thick consistency (it will be coarser & thicker than dosa batter).
  • Add salt, green chilli & coriander to the batter.
  • Heat the tawa, sprinkle a little cold pressed oil to grease the tawa.
  • When hot, pour some batter on the tawa with a laddle & spread it into an even layer.
  • Cover with lid and cook on slow flame. The moisture will cook the chilla and you can flip over more easily.
  • Flip over and cook the other side.
  • Serve hot & enjoy with coconut chutney, tomato chutney, green chutney or any other chutney of your choice.

Eating Guide:

Food group: Legumes
Legumes are whole foods rich in fibre and protein. Can be easily combined with other food groups (except fruits).
Moong dal chilla is good option as a complete meal in itself or could be paired with your favourite sabzi/soup.
