Sooji Besan Chilla with Veggies (Semolina-Gram Flour Crepe with Veggies)

Winter means colourful vegetables all over the market. So I thought of making a different ‘Chilla’ (Indian crepe) recipe combining two different recipes i.e. ‘Sooji Chilla’ (Semolina Crepe) and ‘Besan Chilla’ (Gram Flour/Chick Pea Flour Crepe). In addition I have used some winter veggies like carrot and radish to make it a complete breakfast. You can always add or alter the recipe according to your choice. If you are making this crepe for your kid discard using red chilli powder and chopped green chilli. Serve this with choice of your sauce or ‘chutney’. I served it with some yogurt topped with some honey.
