Chilla is one of the most handy breakfasts one can think of! There is a lot of variety to choose from, it is quick and easy to prepare, and usually does not require complex procedures to make the batter.
You will love the crunch of onions and the aroma of coriander in this snazzy Rava Chilla, which tastes great with green chutney.


  • 3/4 cup semolina (rava / sooji)
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1 tsp finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 tsp finely chopped ginger (adrak)
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
  • 1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing)
  • salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp oil for greasing
  • 6 tsp oil for cooking


1Combine the rava and ¾ cup of water in a deep bowl and whisk well. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 20 minutes. Add all the other ingredients along with ¼ cup of water and mix well.

2Heat a non-stick tava (griddle), grease it with ¼ tsp of oil and pour a ladleful of the batter on it and spread it lightly to make a 125 mm. (5”) diameter circle. Cook using 1 tsp of oil till both the sides turn golden brown in colour.


Repeat step 4 to make 5 more chillas. Serve immediately with green chutney.
