- 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.
- Similarly make all Chillas from the batter.
- Remove the chilas on a serving plate. Serve with tamarind chutney, green chutney and yogurt.
