Stuffed moong dal cheela

Here's the stuffed version of my previous recipe.
1 cup moong dal (split green gram)
100 gms cottage cheese

Salt to taste
A pinch of  heeng (asofoetida)
1 tspn cumin powder
2 chopped green chillies
1 tspn chopped ginger
1/2 cup chopped corriander

Soak moong dal for two hours. Drain out the water and grind the dal into a fine paste. Add heeng, cumin powder, and salt while grinding. Take the paste in a bowl and stir with hand for few minutes. Add some water. Mash the cheese, add salt, chillies, ginger and corriander. Heat a flat pan, spread some oil on the pan and pour two tbspns of batter on it, s
pread it like a pancake. When partially cooked spread the cheese over it and fold the pancake. Take it out when crisp and serve with curd or green chutney.


  1. This really sounds lovely. I, unfortunately, did not have this dish while we were in India. Now I'll be able to try it at home. This is my first visit to your site, but I will be back. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I enjoyed the time I spent here. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary.

  2. @Mary thanks a lot for liking my blog.

    Well, you won't find this recipe in an Indian restaurant since its something that we make at home. I hope you like it once you cook it. :)
