Leftover Khichdi to Chile
Khichdi is frequently prepared in our home. Every Saturday, khichdi is on the menu for dinner. Last Saturday, a lot of khichdi was left over at night, and my family and I was in no mood to have it the next day. So I used that khichdi to prepare tasty chilas. In this recipe, the leftover khichdi was ground in a blender jar. For the chila batter, I have used gram flour (besan) as it is highly nutritious. Some rice flour (chawal ka atta) can also be added to the batter to obtain crispy chilas. This besan is combined with curd (dahi) and chopped onions (pyaaz) along with some spices. These spices can be added according to taste. A little bit of water is also added to give proper consistency to the batter. It should neither be too thick, nor too runny. This batter is then spread on a hot, greased pan and allowed to cook. The side is flipped when one side turns golden-brown in colour. These hot chilas taste fantastic with some Green Coriander Chuney or Tamarind (imli) chutney. And in this way, ordinary khichdi can be transformed into something interesting within minutes.
