Moong Dal Cheela Recipe

Monng-Dal-Cheela

Cheela, crepes or pancakes are the most popular breakfast dishes all over the world. Whether it is Indian cheela made of lentils, savory Asian crepes or Western thick sweet Pancakes, everybody loves them. Let’s not get into the discussion which came first because that is quite a debatable topic, all I know is I devour all three with equal enthusiasm. Moong Dal Cheela is one of our favorite breakfast dishes. It is so simple to make and yet so delicious. With an addition of potato or paneer stuffing, it turns into a fulfilling breakfast meal. If you are little experimental when it comes to flavors, then try the stuffing of feta cheese and sun-dried tomato, the combination tastes superb with Moong Dal Cheela

On a busy weekday, we often skip the stuffing part and serve them with green chutney and tomato ketchup. Learn how to make Moong Dal Cheela in few simple steps.
