What's in the tiffin Mommy - Cheela

Moong Dal Cheela is by far my most favorite breakfast n the kiddo loves it too. Its very nutritious and just the comfort food you need in the morning or in your school tiffin.

You need:

2 cups of moong dal
1 inch cube of ginger
Few pods of garlic as per liking
Salt to taste
Desi ghee

Pick, Wash and Soak Moong dal the night before. Dal should get submerged in water.
Grind it with ginger garlic and salt the next morning...You may add chillies to this. My daughter has'nt started spices and chilli so i avoid.

Once the batter is done, heat a tawaa...i dont use non stick owing to its health hazards. so i use the regualr tawaa. sprinkle lil oil on tawaa and then and rub potato (half cut from the sliced side) prior to spreading the cheela batter on it. This technique makes it a non stick.... spread batter like in dosa. Put ghee on edges. Let it cook on medium flame, turn and cook from other side.

Its cooked before you know it. Serve it with green chutney or butter or with carrots for your lil one... Good for your growing kid for the protein it provides and equally good for you. Try it!
