Zucchini chilas..

The zucchini or courgette is a wonderful and versatile summer vegetable belonging to the cucurbit family. It makes a pleasant accompaniment in a barbecue with meat, in stir fries, and steamed dishes. Here, I am sharing a simple recipe using grated zucchini to make savory chilas or pancakes. This can be a good breakfast or brunch dish. Preparation and cooking time: 30 min.


1 medium sized zucchini grated

1 1/2 cups rice flour

1 tablespoon fine semolina

1 tablespoon roasted and crushed peanuts

3 cloves garlic crushed and chopped fine

1-2  green chilies chopped fine (as per taste)

1/2 cup plain yoghurt

salt to taste

a little oil to drizzle while cooking the chilas.

Mix all the above ingredients upto salt and make a batter of chila or pancake consistency. Heat a non stick fry pan and make the chilas by spreading the batter evenly . Drizzle a little oil while cooking to make the chilas slightly crisp. Flip and cook on both sides till done. Serve with tomato sauce or a relish.

Happy eating !!
