Split Green Gram Pancakes with Cucurbitaceae Chutney/Moong Dal Chilla with Kachri ki Chutney is a great breakfast recipe and is quick to make and is a super healthy recipe. Since we use a non-stick pan it cooks in a minimum amount of oil and is light and easy to digest and give energy to you throughout your morning.
