Nutritious and Delicious: Green Moong Dal Chilla with Veggie Stuffing

As the seasons change, so does our craving for nutritious and delicious meals. Today, I’m excited to share with you a recipe that’s perfect for breakfast or a light dinner – Stuffed Green Moong Dal Chilla. This recipe is packed with protein and veggies, making it a wholesome choice for everyone in the family.


For the Chilla Batter:

1 cup soaked green moong dal
2-3 garlic cloves
2 green chillies
Salt to taste

For the Stuffing:

1 carrot, grated
1 capsicum, finely chopped
1 beetroot, grated
100g paneer, grated

Soak the green moong dal overnight or for at least 6 hours.

Drain the soaked moong dal and add it to a blender along with garlic cloves, green chillies, and salt. Blend until you get a smooth batter. You can add a little water if needed to reach the desired consistency.

Grate the carrot, beetroot, and paneer. Finely chop the capsicum. Mix all the grated and chopped vegetables together. Add a pinch of salt if desired.

Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat and lightly grease it with oil. Pour a ladleful of the chilla batter onto the pan and spread it in a circular motion to form a thin pancake.

Cook the chilla on one side until it starts to turn golden brown. Flip it over and cook the other side.

Once both sides of the chilla are cooked, place a generous amount of the vegetable and paneer stuffing on one half of the chilla.

Fold the chilla over the stuffing to make a semi-circle. Press down gently with a spatula to ensure the stuffing is secure and the chilla is cooked through.

Serve the stuffed green moong dal chilla hot with a side of your favorite chutney or yogurt.
