What is moong dal cheela?

Thin and crisp crepe made up of moong dal flavored with ginger and green chilies is dal cheela. It is light on the belly and nice on the tongue, as in easy to digest and delicious to eat. Perfect moong dal cheela is porous and thin. It can be served with green chutney or tomato ketchup. There are a number of ways to customize it, by stuffing it in different ways or adding different ingredients for the bite and flavor.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Moong Dal Cheela

I have used yellow moong dal for the recipe. Keeping it simple I have flavored it with green chilies and ginger. It compliments the flavor of dal. Rice flour is added to make the cheela crisp and gram flour adds a good flavor and gives a nice texture to moong dal.

A variation of moong dal cheela is on the blog already. It is the stuffed moong dal. View the recipe here. Another healthy cheela is besan cheela. View its recipe here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
