I have chosen to work under the theme crepes for the first week of BM 82 . Yesterday I made Spinach and Lentil Crepes , today I have the Besan Chilla .

 

Besan chilla are very popular in Rajasthan , they are also very popular as a street food in Delhi . Now we have many versions of these chillas , the one available on the streets are very different and I shall definitely post those too . Today’s version is a routine breakfast chilla served in Sindhi homes … but with a fusion . The chilla is same but I added some vada stuffing to make it into a filling meal . We had these Chillas for dinner , though this could pass as an excellent evening snack . One can enjoy these without the stuffing for breakfast . So let’s check the recipe .
