Moong pudla

Green moong chilla (pudla) is a healthy recipe prepared from green gram batter and grated paneer toppings. It is a nutritious meal for early morning breakfast or perhaps as a snack for kids as it supplies all the required nutrients. these chilla or pudla are savory in taste and do not need any side dish, but tastes great with tomato ketchup or green chutney.

I tried this recipe much time at home, after many trials, I learned few basic things which should be kept in mind while making moong chilla and they will always turn out perfect.

The key to making the perfect moong chilla at home are;

  • The batter has to be a medium-thick and pouring consistency hence adds water in small batches while grounding the soaked green moong beans.
  • Vegetable and paneer stuffing is completely open-ended and you can add as per your preference. but ensure that these veggies are finely chopped and do easily make nice and mushy stuffing.
  • Lower the flame and decrease the tawa temperature while spreading chilla (pudla) batter.
