Chila is a fabulous snack, which has withstood the test of time. Normally made with a batter of besan or moong dal, these thin pancakes have a very homely and satisfying taste.

Chilas can also be made of grated purple yam, as in this recipe. Although it uses only basic ingredients, the Kand Chila tastes awesome when had right off the tava with tongue-tickling green chutney.

Some people like to replace the salt with sendha namak and have this Kand Chila on fasting days , as it tastes good and gives enough energy too.

Kand Chilla recipe with step by step photos
  1. Take a clean, deep mixing bowl and put the grated purple yam in it. Grate the yam right before cooking or else it will become darker the more time it is exposed to air. In case you want to prepare the ingredients beforehand, grate the yam and submerge it in water to prevent darkening.
  2. Add the finely chopped green chillies for a spicy kick.
  3. Now finally add the cumin seeds and salt.
  4. Mix all the ingredients together either using a spoon or with your hands.
  5. Divide the mixture into 2 equal portions. Keep aside.
  6. Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and grease it with a little ghee.
  7. Once the ghee is hot, wet your fingers and put one portion of the mixture on the tava. Wetting your fingers prevents the yam from sticking to them. 
  8. Spread the mixture evenly, gently pressing down with your fingers.
  9. Cover it with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  10. Then turn it over and cook on the other side for 2 minutes or till golden brown in color.
  11. Repeat steps 6 to 10 to make one more chilla. Similarly you can even make Moong dal chilla.
