Stuffed Oats and Moong Dal Pancakes (Chila) Recipe

imageStuffed Oats and Moong Dal Pancake : Batter for these pancakes has been made with rolled oats and soaked moong dal. I have used a stuffing of cottage cheese, chopped onion, coriander leaves, piri piri seasoning and salt.
These pancakes are a perfect  combination of healthy as well as scrumptious breakfast. Very less oil is required if you use a nonstick pan for cooking these pancakes. Moong dal , as we all know, is known to be powerhouse of protein and Oats are rich source of dietary fibre along with being a good source of protein. 
Relish these pancakes with coriander chutney for breakfast. Good news for all moms – it is a kid friendly recipe too. 
Yields: 6 Small Pancakes
  • 3/4 Cup Moong Dal (Yellow)
  • 1/2 Cup Oats
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Paste
  • 1/4 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 100 Gms. Cottage Cheese(Paneer)
  • 1 Large Onion (Chopped)
  • 1 Tsp Piri Piri Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Chopped Coriander
  • Salt
  • Oil ( For Cooking )


  1. Soak yellow moong dal in water for 30-40 minutes.
  2. Transfer soaked moong dal, oats, green chillies, garlic paste, red chilli powder and salt to grinder jar.
  3. Blitz the mixture till you get a smooth batter. Use water as necessary.
  4. Grate cottage cheese and mix chopped onion, piri piri seasoning, chopped coriander leaves and salt along with it. 
  5. Heat a non-stick pan and smear it with a few drops of oil.
  6. Lower the flame and drop a ladle full of pancake batter on non-stick pan. Spread it into a small circle. Do not make it it too thin or too thick.
  7. Sprinkle stuffing over it and again drop a few teaspoons of batter over stuffing.
  8. Cook both sides till they turn golden at low-medium flame. Use a few more drops of oil if necessary.
  9. Continue with remaining batter.
  10. Serve hot Stuffed Oats and Moong Dal Pancakes with Coriander Chutney.


  1. You can use green moong dal in place of yellow moong dal but pancakes taste better with yellow moong dal.
  2. Piri Piri Seasoning can be replaced with chilli flakes/chilli powder/chopped green chillies as per availability/taste.

Pasta in Creamy Oats Sauce Recipe

imagePasta in creamy oats sauce dish is an adaptation of a recipe which I watched on a Fit Foodie show. I watched it yesterday on television and today itself , I tried my hands on it. This dish looks absolutely tempting and nothing can stop it from becoming one of your kid’s favorite pasta . They are sure to indulge in it and so are you.

Since, oats have been used to make creamy sauce, serve it immediately after it has been prepared. If not, it will become sticky instead of creamy.

So, just sit back and enjoy healthy as well as scrumptious pasta in creamy oats sauce.
