Besan Chilla with Veggies (Preparation Time: 20 minutes, Make 5-6 chillas)
Guest Blogger: Sargam N Chand
Ishita and I have been friends for long and her move to New York has been as exciting for me as it has been for her. Both of us have toddlers who are about the same age and since we live in the same block, we often get together for play-dates. Our daughters love to play with each other and eat together.
It's nice to see how Ishita is so conscious of the nutritional content of the food that she feeds her daughter. She keeps me motivated to do the same for Kyra's meals. My mom's age old chilla recipe has come in handy whenever we travel; it's easy to prepare, pack, carry and feed. I thought that adding some vegetables to the chilla would enhance its taste and nutrition.
Recently, when we were helping Amit and Ishita set up their new home, we went shopping together to IKEA. For the excursion, I prepared these chillas for our little ones and they both loved it! You should try this recipe - I am sure your baby (s) will relish it too.

You could vary the spices per your liking.These chillas can be served with ketchup or coriander chutney for the grown ups and older kids. You can pep it up by adding onions, green chillies and finely chopped coriander.
