Moong Dal Chilla/Cheela – High Protein Breakfast Recipes by Archana’s Kitchen

Moong Dal Chillas, popularly called poodlas, are protein packed crepes that are seasoned with green chillies, thinly sliced onions and coriander leaves along with choice of vegetables make a wholesome breakfast or a light dinner. At home, I use a variety of vegetables like fenugreek leaves or finely chopped cabbage or even make a roll with some stir-fried vegetables giving it a new twist.
A favourite accompaniment is freshly made Tameta Ni Chutney if we are having it for dinner; and if we are having it for breakfast we have it along with softened butter and crushed jaggery. Not to mention a hot cup of ginger tea to enhance the experience.

  1. Hi Archana,

    I saw ur recipe today on You Tube and tried making it today, the Crepes turned out to be really awesome. I actually made it without onion today, still the taste was really good. I have been checking on the recipes and they have simply amused me a lot. Thank u for this lovely recipe and I’m looking forward for more of ur recipes.

  2. Yes you can you split urad dal as well. Urad dal adds to the the softness of the chilla. Since there is not fermenting of the batter, the split urad dal is ok to use.
