BESAN CHILLA CURRY/ CHILLE KI SABJI/ JAIN RECIPE

Chila / childe ki sabji /Besan chilla curry /Jain recipe
Rajasthani besan chilla curry is a traditional recipe usually made in our home. I also prefer making this dish when I am out of veggies. It is curd based gravy with savoury gram flour pancakes.

It’s a great side dish with roti/parantha or rice and quite easy to make.
