Moong/mung Dal Chila (green Gram Pancake)
I had this recipe in my cousins’ weddings. In Indian weddings, you can really indulge in elaborate food platters…..The food is layed twice as ‘ Nasta’ or the tea time snack and the ‘ Khana’ or the dinner. The ‘Nasta’ comprises of all the Indian chaats, Paani puri and snacks. In my cousins’ wedding, I saw hot chilas being served to guests. The cook had a huge bowl containing the batter and he was quickly laying out hot chillas and then serving it with coriander and tamarind chutney. Since then I tried it as a breakfast recipe and found it really quick and tasty.
