Chila is a tasty and time-tested snack, perfect for breakfast. It gives a lot of room for innovation too, as you can add your favourite veggies, greens or other ingredients to make it as exciting as you want. Here, these scrumptious pancakes are made using buckwheat, which is extremely high in fibre, calcium and iron. Carrots and spring onions add crunch to these High Fibre Chilas, as well as their share of nutrition too. When served with low-calorie green chutney, this meal is sure to make a smile bloom on your face.
