Moong Dal Chila / Pancakes made from Lentil Batter

Need : Yellow Moong dal (washed and soaked overnight), green chillies, fresh ginger, jeera / cumin, haldi / turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt to taste and water.
How to : Soak moong dal overnight. Grind into a paste with the green chillies, ginger and a pinch of jeera.
Add water to make a thin batter. Add salt, haldi and a little red chilli powder.

Heat a little oil in a tawa and spread out the batter . Fry till crispy and brown on both sides.

A spoonful of rice powder can also be used in the batter to make the chilas extra crisp.

These go very well with coconut chutney or achar.

Tip : If a tablespoonful of cooking oil is added to the batter and a non-stick tawa is used, then almost no extra oil is need to fry the chilas.
