Sometimes, the modification of some of the ingredients or the addition of veggies can give a very innovative spin to popular recipes.

Here, the addition of buttermilk and cabbage has that effect on the traditional chila. The rava and the urad dal flour are essential ingredients that balance the mushiness of rice very well. Coriander and green chillies impart a wonderful aroma that fills the room when the rice and vegetable chila is cooked on the tava.

Good to serve for Breakfast as well as Evening Tea Snacks .
