Pudla is a savory pancake made using jowar, wheat, and gram flour. It is a great dish to serve for breakfast or keep for a tiffin box. It is quick and easy to prepare in under 15 minutes. It is very healthy as well, as it is protein-packed and gluten-free. I share sweet and sour tomato garlic chutney with pudla which is easy and loved by all kinds of age groups. Do give this one a try!
