On the other hand, paneer, another major ingredient of this recipe, is famous for its high protein content. It is the best source of protein for vegetarians and helps in strengthening our bones and teeth. Also, having a content of healthy fats makes it top the charts in the list of weight loss foods.

1. In a blender, add the soaked moong dal, chopped spinach, ginger, green chilies and garlic. Add some water and make a smooth batter out of it.

2. Take out the batter in a bowl and add some salt to it.

3. Take another bowl and mix chopped coriander, onions, tomatoes and some grated paneer in it.

4. Now take a non-stick pan and brush the pan with some ghee or olive oil. Make sure you don’t use too much as that won’t be necessary or healthy.

5. Heat the pan on medium heat and spread the batter in round chillas. You can either make small 4-5 chillas or just make 1 big one.

6. On top of the spread batter, add the vegetable-paneer mixture that we made in another bowl and cook from both sides until they are done.

7. Your palak paneer chilla is ready to serve! You can have it with tomato or cilantro chutney.
