  • 1 Cup instant breakfast oats powdered (buy it here)
  • 1/3 Cup yellow moong dal soaked
  • 2 green chillies
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • an inch piece of ginger peeled
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp mango powder amchur
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil to grease the pan


  • To prepare the Oats and Moong Dal Chilla, first make powder of oats in mixer (buy it here). Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  • In the mixer grind the soaked moong dal to fine paste along with green chili, garlic, ginger using little water. Make sure not to use more than 1/4 Cup of water.
  • In a large mixing bowl (buy it here) combine together powdered oats, moong dal paste, spices and salt. Stir to combine and gradually add water to make a thick batter of dropping consistency. The batter will be similar to the consistency of a dosa batter or pancake batter
  • Once batter is ready, heat a non stick pan (buy it here) over medium heat. Grease the pan with a teaspoon or so of cooking oil.
  • Pour a ladle full of batter on the pan and spread it in a circular motion to form a thin crepe/chilla.
  • Drizzle little oil around the chilla, cook it until you notice the edges are getting brown and leaving the pan easily. Flip and cook on the other side for a few seconds
  • Once Oats and Moong Dal Chilla is crisp on both sides, transfer the Chilla to a plate and proceed to make the chillas with the remaining batter
  • Serve the Oats and Moong Dal Chilla with green chutney/pickle for the wholesome breakfast or lunch.
