    Moong Dal Paneer Chila: Breakfast Recipe

    A chila is a famous breakfast recipe from North-India. It is often called the vegetarian omelet due to its appearance which bears close resemblance to the normal omelet. But the taste of a chila is entirely different and the health benefits are numerous.

    Chila is generally prepared with besan or chickpea flour. It is prepared in the same manner as a dosa. Here in this recipe we have added a twist by preparing it with moong dal which is rich in proteins. To enhance the taste further we have added paneer which makes this breakfast recipe a lip-smacking delight. You can experiment with the recipe by adding nutritious vegetables to it.
