Yellow Lentil pancakes stuffed with mildly spiced cottage cheese mixture
Breakfast should be the most important meal of the day so it have to be healthy and filling to keep up our energy level till lunch time.In Indian we do have the habit of doing heavy breakfast and it vary according to each state and region. Aloo Paratha, Aloo Poha, Idli , cheela and so many variety of breakfast you can get in India
In western countries they often make pancakes with refined flour but in India we make so many varieties of pan cakes or crepe using gram flour ,lentils, rice and different types of millets . In Southern India Masala dosa ,Adai dosa, Rava uttapam are very popular and in North Indian cheela is popular which is mostly served as a breakfast or brunch option.
In my family every one loves moong daal ka cheela but as compared to the plain cheela the one filled with paneer is often made due to popular demand of family members :).Making moong daal ka cheela is quite easy and quick, Just soak yellow moong daal /yellow lentil for few hours and then grind it with green chili, ginger and asafoetida and then spread it like a pancake and cook to a nice golden colour.
Stuffing is optional ,you can have the cheela plain or stuff with potato mixture or paneer mixture ,choice is yours ,but it taste awesome both ways.It can be served with mint chutney ,tomato ketchup or any tangy dip.
