Moong Dal Chilla are high protein lentil crepes that are made from yellow split moong lentils and urad dal. The addition of Urad dal keeps these chilla's soft and perfect for a lunch or a snack box. I typically spread a jam, sauce, Coconut Chutney or Idli Milagai Podi into the chilla and fold it like a triangle. You can also add a spinach based dal along with it which goes really well with this crispy chilla. This gives the additional taste for the children to enjoy it. Folding the Chilla's into a triangle also helps them just pick it up and eat it without tearing it into pieces.
