Perfectly low calorie dish for me...Besan being low in glycemic index helps to maintain sugar levels whereas one gets ample amount of nutrients from Mixed sprouts....

the chilas themselves taste amazing and the stuffing only enhances the flavour of the dish. the stuffing tastes like chat which adds a tangy flavour to the dish
