Hi all,

Being a  vegetarian,my protein choices are really limited. However,I love having Paneer &moong dal chilla as it keeps me satiated till lunch,and I am not tempted to grab biscuits or other such junk at work.I have used ready made moong dal flour which is available at all Gujarati food stores in Mumbai.However,keeping mind ,the non availability of moong dal flour elsewhere,I will share a recipe which can be made with besan as well and tastes just as great .

Here we go. I don’t have pics with ingredients as I had already made the batter and Ana suggested I share this recipe. Please excuse the quality of pics as I had not planned to do a post, so I took them quickly.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup moong dal (soaked for 3-4 hours and ground to a thick paste) OR 1 cup Besan
  • Onions,finely chopped
  • Coriander Finely chopped
  • Green chillies,chopped (according to your spice tolerance)
  • Haldi/Turmeric (Half tsp)
  • Dhania powder (I tsp)
  • Garam Masala ( half tsp)
  • Salt to taste
  • Crumbled paneer(optional)
  • Water to make thick batter
  • Fruit salt
  • Oil spray /oil to coat the waffle plate

Method:

Mix  all ingredients except oil  to make a thick batter. ..batter should not be runny otherwise it will create a real mess in the waffle maker

Add eno /fruit salt with I tsp of water to the batter and mix vigorously. The batter will look like this –

Now heat the waffle maker.I am using Kenwood sandwich toaster which comes with a waffle plate.

Generally prefer using oil spray cans as they are less messy to grease sandwich toasters,but you can use oil/butter and spread evenly. Oil spray is preferable if you are watching your weight.Oil sprays are available at supermarkets.

Grease the waffle plate and evenly spread some batter,enough to cover the waffle plate .Do not overfill as it will spill out creating a mess.

Close the lid and cook for 5-8 minutes or till the light turns green on the sandwich maker.After cooking it will look like this.
