Moong Dal Chilla
1 cup green gram, soaked, (moong dal)
¼ cup Black lentils, soaked,( urad dal)
2 cup Spinach,chopped ( palak)
1 onion, finely sliced, (pyaz)
1 tsp cumin, ( jeera)
2 tbsp fennel seeds,( saunf)
2 green chillies, finely chopped, ( hari mirch)
1Tbsp hung curd
1 tsp turmeric powder, (haldi,)
1 tsp oil + for cooking, (tel )
Salt to taste, namak
100 gms Sweet tamarind chutney to serve
100 gms Green chutney to serve
4 tbsp Hung curd to serve
Soak moong dal and urad dal overnight. Blend both in a mixer and remove in a bowl.
Make sure the batter is semi liquid but not runny. If needed use the soaking water to thin down the batter.
Heat oil in a frying pan. Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds and onions and sauté till onions get browned. Now add this mix to the batter and mix well.
Add spinach,green chillies, turmeric powder and salt into the batter and mix again.
Heat a tawa/pan and put some oil into it. Now pour one ladle full of batter and spread it around the tawa/pan by tilting the tawa/pan in a rotary movement.
Once the chila is cooked and is brown on one side, flip it and cook it on the other side as well adding oil if required.
Similarily make all Chillas from the batter.
Remove the chilas on a serving plate. Serve with tamarind chutney, green chutney and yogurt.
