  • 2 drops of oil
  • 1 cup Chilka waali mung dal soaked in water for 2-3 hours & crushed in a mixer with water to make a batter (Split green mung dal)
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste.
  • Salt per taste
  • 4 chopped green chillies

For stuffing:

  • 150 gm grated paneer.
  • 2 spoons of finely chopped bell peppers (Shimla Mirch).
  • 2 spoons of finely chopped onion
    some chopped coriander.
  • Imli chutney OR Coriander chutney (whichever you like).



  • In a flat pan, pour 2 drops of oil, warm up the pan on slow flame.
  • Take 1 cup split green mung dal, soak in water for 2-3 hours before cooking and crush it in a mixie with some water to make batter consistency.
  • Add 1 tsp ginger garlic paste.
  • Add some salt per taste.
  • Mix well
  • Add 2 chopped green chillies to the batter; leave the rest for stuffing
  • Mix everything
  • Time to make mung dal chilla.
  • Take some batter and pour in the centre of the pan and spread it around just like we do for dosa.
  • Let it cook on a slow flame
  • While chilla is getting cooked, let’s prepare the paneer stuffing in a bowl, take 150 gm grated paneer and add 2 spoons of colourful finely chopped bell peppers.
  • Add 2 spoons of finely chopped onions and remaining finely chopped green chillies and corriander.
  • Mix this colourful paneer stuffing
    Meanwhile, chilla is getting cooked, flip it on the pan so that it gets cooked from both sides equally.
  • Now apply some Imly ki chutney on one side of the chilla and fill stuffing in the middle.
  • Roll it over
  • Chilla is ready.
  • Garnish with coriander and serve hot or even giving this in tiffin is a wonderful idea.
  • I eat this all the time as it’s got just 2 drops of oil.
