Suji ka Chilla

My today's quick morning breakfast was Suji ka chilla with mixed pickle and fresh orange juice. "Chilla" is a substitute word for dosa and is mostly used in northern and central India. Suji or rava or semolina chilla
is a tasty, easy and quick to prepare. It is a bit different from our normal Rava Dosa.

Ingredients :
  • Suji 2 cups
  • All purpose flour 2 tbsps
  • Curd or butter milk
  • Cheese (optional)
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 2 green chillies chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cummin seeds (jeera)
  • 1/2 tsp ajwain
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil or butter
Method :
  • Mix all the ingredients to make dosa like batter with out any lumps.
  • Brush your nonstick frying pan with butter or oil.
  • Preheat the pan.
  • Spread the batter as we do for dosa on pan.
  • Cover it with lid till the upper surface become dry.
  • Now brush it with oil and cook from both the sides.
  • Cook in low or medium flame.
Serve it with any spicy chatni or curry.
