Notes:

  • Firstly, make sure to squeeze out the palak and other vegetables to release water.
  • Also, adding rava gives a nice texture to the chilla. however, you can just prepare using the besan.
  • Additionally, i like my chilla to be slightly tangy, so i have added curd.
  • Finally, Palak Chilla Recipe tastes great when served hot or packed in a lunch box.
