Moong Dal Chillas, popularly called poodlas, are protein packed crepes that are seasoned with green chillies, thinly sliced onions and coriander leaves along with choice of vegetables make a wholesome breakfast or a light dinner. At home, I use a variety of vegetables like fenugreek leaves or finely chopped cabbage or even make a roll with some stir-fried vegetables giving it a new twist.
