How To Make Sprouts Chilla, Protein Rich Snack

A bowl of sprouts is an amazing breakfast and snack option. Mix in onion and tomato’s and some lemon juice you’ve got yourself a relaxing breakfast or snack like a sprouts salad.

But what if I tell you they taste even better in this recipe. I haven’t cooked sprouts and used them directly. While the chilla is cooking they also cook and have a bite to it which I love. Another way to it is if you cook the spouts and squish them a bit before adding the rest of the ingredients.

I just love the crusty edges.

What other things you can add is really up to you but for a basic version adding chopped onions is enough!

So lets being with this healthy treat.

Directions to make Sprouts Chilla-


2 cups sprouts(I have used Red pegion eye beans/ lal lobia) use any of your choice
3/4 cup finely chopped onions (you can also add finely chopped capsicum, carrot or beans)
1/2 cup semolina
1-2 tbsp curd
Green chillies finely chopped as per taste
Salt and pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl until combined. Leave it for 5 mins.

The semolina/sooji will become soft. If need be add enough water to make a batter without lumps.

Heat a nonstick pan. Spread 2-3 tbsp filling in a round shape.

Cook the chilla on both side with about 1tsp oil.

You have to make small disc size chillas so that they don’t break when you flip them.


Serve hot.
