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.
