  • 1 cup whole moong beans (sprouted per directions above)
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 2 green chillies
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp chickpea flour (besan)
  • 2 tbsp brown rice flour (optional, but makes the chillas extra-crispy. Use regular white rice flour if you can't find brown)
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (finely chopped)
  • 1 large carrot (grated using the side with the largest-size slots on your grater-- you don't want this to be too fine)
  • Cooking oil spray


  • Place the mung beans in the blender along with the ginger, garlic, chillies and salt and blend until smooth, using just enough water to get a slightly-runnier-than-pancake-batter consistency. Add the flours and veggies and cilantro and mix well. Set aside for 10 minutes and mix again.
  • Heat a cast-iron or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until water sprinkled on the surface skitters off and dries up immediately.
  • Spray on a thin coating of the oil and then place ½ cup of the batter in the center using a ladle with a rounded bottom. Use the bottom of the ladle to spread the batter into as thin a round as possible. This doesn't have to be crepe-like, but if you ladle it on too thick the inside might not cook through.
  • When the top looks dry and the edges turn brown, flip over and cook until golden-brown.
