Chilla is a North Indian Pancake mainly done with besanflour. More or less the same or a South Indian Pancake is done with soaked Gramdal is called Adai. Chilla is also known as ' Vegetarian Omelette' since it tastes and looks-like the same . I tried this Chilla adding Oats and found it tasty n healthy.

U can add chopped spinach to make it even healthier.It can be served as Breakfast/Dinner or a snack recipe.Serve it with Green Chutney and tomato Ketchup. Enjoy Easy n instant Breakfast at home!. Enjoy ur meal!.Bonappetit!
