Stuffed Moong Dal Chilla

Stuffed Moong Dal Chilla  

In winters eating moong dal chilla used to be a delicacy during good old days. Today kids like more junk food, more cheese, more corns, bell peppers etc. Same is the scenario at my home. Conventional dishes are no more attractive to this generation.

So I prepared dal chilla with the stuffing of all her favourite veggies like bell pepper, corns, paneer etc. whatever they like. This makes this Stuffed Moong Dal Chilla healthy, nutritious and tasty.

Preparation Time : 15 Min

  • 1 Cup soaked moong dal (for 2 to 3 hours)

  • 2 Tablespoon grated paneer
  • 2 Tablespoon blanched sweet corns
  • 2 Tablespoon chopped bell pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon pizza seasoning

Procedure :  
  • Take 1 cup moong dal, wash it and soak it in enough water for 2 to 3 hours

  • In a grinder, take soaked moong dal along with chopped green chilies, ginger and salt and grind it into smooth paste. Transfer this in a bowl and keep aside

  • In this mixture add rice flour and mix it well. Make sure that the batter is in a free flowing form if required add little water to this
