Yellow Moong Dal Chilla

Hey! today I am posting a recipe for a tasty, easy and healthy breakfast recipe. Chilla or pancake basically is of the dosa family however it does not require any long fermentation process as the dosa batter and can be instantly made using any ingredients you want to mix and match. I made these chilla using yellow moong dal or yellow lentils (split). Yellow moong dal is very versatile in its nature and hence can be paired with any ingredient and can be made into many dishes. I use it to make bhajiyas/fritters also. So lets get cooking….


Yellow moong Dal – 1 cup

Rava/Semolina – 1/2 cup

Curd/Dahi – 1/4 cup

Onion (finely chopped) – 1 small

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Giner-Green Chilly Paste – 1 tbsp

Salt as required

Water – 1 1/4 cup

Oil for greasing


1) In a bowl soak the yellow moong dal for half an hour. After half an hour grind the yellow moong dal into a paste using little water if needed.

2) In a bowl mix together the dal paste, rava, curd, salt, turmeric powder, ginger green chilly paste and finely chopped onion and mix it all well. Add the water little by little and make a loose batter of pouring consistency. Keep this batter to rest for 10 minutes.

3) In Meanwhile take a non stick tawa. Let it become warm on slow flame. Once warm pour the above made batter on the tawa and make a round chilla/dosa. Coo till crisp.

4) Serve hot with chutney.
