For making chilla

Take besan flour, red chili powder, turmeric and salt in a mixing bowl. Add a pinch of baking soda as well. Slowly add water and making thick batter. Batter should be like dosa consistency.

Now heat up the non – stick or dosa tava. Apply some oil.

Pour this prepared batter on tava to make chilla. I made a single thick chilla with this prepared batter because we need thick chilla for this recipe.

Pour some oil on the sides and cook over low – medium flame. When chilla cooked from one side flip it up with the help of flat spatula and cook other side as well.

When chilla cooked from both the side take it out, let it cool down for some time.

Take one knife and cut it into square shape and set aside.

For making Kadhi

Take curd in a mixing bowl and whisk it well. Add red chilli, turmeric and besan flour, mix well without any lumps.  Add 2 cups of water and Set it aside.

Heat up oil in a kadai.

When the oil is hot add methi seeds, mustard and broken red chili. Wait until they crackle nicely.

Add hing then immediately pour the curd mixture that we made and cover the lid for few seconds. So that the khadi will absorb the all aroma of ‘tadka’. Be careful while pouring curd mixture in kadai the steam may burn your hand.

After few seconds open the lid and add curry leaves and salt. Stir well.

Keep the flame on high and bring this mixture to boil.

When the khadi starts to boil simmer the flame and let kadhi boil for 5-6 minutes. Maintain low flame.

After 5-6 minutes when the khadi is cooked well add chilla pieces and chopped coriander leaves. Wait for few second, not much then turn off the flame.

Serve this chilla kadhi after 10 minutes when chilla absorbed the kadhi nicely.

This chilla kadhi goes well with hot steamed rice.
