  • You can also add other chopped vegetables including carrots and capsicum.

  2. Mix it well and start adding water gradually for a smooth consistency. I added approximately 1.5 cups of water.
  3. Let it rest for about 20-30 minutes so that the ingredients get infused well.
  4. Now add chopped vegetables of your choice, I added chopped onions and fresh coriander leaves.
  5. Add spices including salt, red chili powder, cumin powder, and coriander powder as required.
  6. Now on a simmered pan, pour a ladle of chilla batter, and with the help of olive oil, cook it well and even on both sides.
