Bajri and Pallak Chilla.

One of the most commonly consumed grains in India, bajra is often referred to as “poor man’s staple”. This powerhouse of a grain has multiple health benefits. Mainly made of starch, and mostly insoluble fibres. This makes it a great long-acting source of energy and takes longer time to break. Therefore you feel fuller, for longer. These are great for diabetic people as well.

Bajra Chilla is a healthy crepe that can make a wholesome breakfast.

I was introduced to this awesome dish by my friend Ashraf Merchant who is an awesome food maker.

So here goes the recipe…

Ingredients:

Recipe

6 tbsp Bajri Aata.

2 tbsp Besan.

1 Onion finely chopped.

1 Green Chilly finely chopped.

15 Palak leaves washed and roughly chopped.

2 tbsp Curd.

1/4 tspn Dhana Jeera Powder.

1/2 tsp Red chilly powder

Pinch of Haldi Powder.

1/2 tsp Ajwain.

1/2 tsp Sesame Seeds.

2 tbsp Oil.

Salt to taste.

Method:

Make batter by mixing bajri flour,besan,curd and dry spices and salt, add water to get dropping consistency.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Add chopped onions, green chillies and  palak. Give it a good mix.

On a non stick pan add oil and add spoon full of prepared batter, cook well on both the sides.

Remove in a serving dish and serve hot with ketchup or mint chutney.

Happy Cooking!!!
