These days most of us are health freaks and are looking for something healthy and at the same time yummy to eat. Moong daal chillas are one of such recipes. These are healthy as you can add as many veggies as you like to the protein rich chilla paste.
It’s a good tiffin recipe as well. You can even play with the chilla paste. I love trying different shapes, especially the ones my 3 year old daughter tells me to prepare. This in disguise helps me to add to her excitement to eat those healthy chillas. 😇
