A twist on the traditional Moong Dal Cheela / Chila recipe, where it is served with a spicy-crunchy topping, instead of chutneys. Healthy breakfast is served!
Moong dal cheelas are are a very popular breakfast in Rajasthan. They are also made using Besan or gram flour. Light and nutritious, they can be served with a choice of fillings. In this recipe, the cheelas are bite sized and the topping is made from a traditional Hyderabadi spice mix used to stuff vegetables and a touch of tamarind to the batter rounds off the flavours. A similar combination of peanuts, sesame seeds and chillies are also used in the making of the curry base for saalan. Topping cheelas with the crunchy mix adds a lovely mix of flavours and textures to the dish. The spice powder can also be used to eat with idlis and dosas
