This sprout and palak cheela is a very healthy and easy to make recipe. You can make the batter and keep refrigerated and then easily use it for 2-3 days for breakfast or for kids tiffin. You just need some ketchup , chutney or curd to serve with this snack.
I have used moong sprouts in this chilla but you can use mix spouts or chana sprouts for making this. If spinach is not available then you can use fresh fenugreek or fresh coriander or grated cabbage instead.
These healthy besan pudla’s can be made with gram flour/ besan or moong daal flour what ever is available in your pantry. Both taste almost similar but I always prefer using yellow moong daal flour as it is easy to digest as compared to besan.
