The pleasant monsoon morning, instantly lifts our spirits up, doesn’t it? Early mornings ,the cool breeze and a slight drizzle are my favourite. And such a beautiful weather demands an awesome breakfast (with ginger tea , of course)!
So todays breakfast was ,these hot and spicy paneer stuffed moong dal cheelas. My kids are not much into cheelas . Its the same for everything healthy, I guess. You dish out a burger or a plate of pasta, it will just vanish in minutes. You make something healthy, You’ll have to fight a battle to just make them take a bite.
But I love to have these moong dal cheelas with a spicy tomato chutney. So to make it a little more interesting for the kids, I prepared a paneer filling and just renamed the dish as Spicy Paneer stuffed green crepes ;-). Just stuffing the cheela with the spicy paneer mix , struck the right chords, and they just loved it!
It’s a quick n easy recipe. The only skill required is , making the thin crepe/cheela with Moong dal batter. When I tried making these for the first time, I was pretty confident about it, as I was used to making dosas . But this moong dal batter is a little difficult to work with . It took me a while to get the hang of it. So just keep trying your hand at this, and soon you will be making the perfect cheelas.
On the brighter side, I normally get the last cheela of the lot, which is the bestest and the crispiest one. Cause by that time, you’ve already achieved some level of expertise ;-).
