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…



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.


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.
