Multi Grain Chilla

1 cup Multi Grain Powder*
1 cup water
1 finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped capsicum (I had put yellow and red ones)
2 green chillies finely chopped
salt and chili powder to taste

note - u can any other vegie u like

1. Mix the powder with water to get a batter of smooth consistency...
2. Add salt, chilli powder and rest of the ingridents
3. Heat a tawa and spread the mixture on the tawa...
4. Roast on side and then turn and roast the other.
5. Enjoy with ketchup or green chutney...

* - the funda here is the powder... we usually make it the following way...
100gms ragi (Finger millet)
100 gms wheat
100 gms bajra Pearl Millet
100 gms jawar
100 gms corn
100 gms green moong dal
100 gms black gram
handful of almonds
handful of cashew

wash all the grains and the soak overnight for slight sprouting
dry roast them on low flame and then grind them till powder is ready

Its extremely nutritious and my son loves it... for him I usually make it by just cooking it for 5 mins with water and later feed him by mixing it with his formula or some curd

The above is a cumbersome process and if u dont have the time and energy to do so.. u can get a similar ready powder in the market (atleast in the southern parts of the country its pretty popular)
