This oats chila loaded with summer-friendly and easily available veggies is an absolute delight. A healthy tummy is a happy tummy and an effortless healthy breakfast recipe is something we all look forward to. But, who knew chila can be tweaked this way?
High in protein, fibre, minerals…And delicious too? Soft and moist on the inside, but crispy-crusty on the outside - what more can you ask for? Traditionally, chila’s (Indian savory pancakes) are made with either gram flour (besan) or moong daal (yellow Moong-Split or whole) but this oats chila is something you will try out today.
Oats is a whole-grain food loaded with vitamins and minerals. It is a good source of fiber, fat, and protein. What’s more? Oatmeal’s strong nutritional profile facilitates the baby's growth and development. This chila recipe is also recommended for babies who are already enjoying solid foods at six months onward.
