These chilas are very rich in proteins


  • Bean sprouts (ankurit moong) 2 cups
  • Ginger, finely chopped 2 tsps
  • Green chillies, seeded and finely chopped 2 tsps
  • Whole wheat flour 1 cup
  • Asafoetida ¼ tsp
  • Turmeric powder ½ tsp
  • Coriander powder 1 tsp
  • Kashmiri red chilli powder 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped 2 tbsps


  • Put the sprouts in a grinder jar, add ginger, green chillies and some water and grind them well.
  • Transfer the mixture into a mixing bowl, add whole wheat flour, asafoetida, turmeric powder, coriander powder, Kashmiri red chilli powder, salt and coriander leaves and mix well. Add a little water and mix well to make a smooth batter.
  • Heat a non-stick tawa, drizzle some oil on it and spread a ladle full of batter into a round chila.
  • When the underside turns a light brown, flip, drizzle some oil all around and cook till the other side is similarly cooked. Transfer it onto a plate. Make more chilas with the remaining batter.
  • Place different shaped cookie cutters on the chilas to get different shaped chilas.
  • Keep them on a serving platter and serve hot with a bowl of tomato ketchup or pack them into tiffin boxes.
