Sprouts and semolina or suji/rawa chila or pancakes. A healthy, delicious and low calorie breakfast dish. We all know that sprouts are extremely nutritious and super healthy food. You can use these vitamins, protein and mineral enriched sprouts raw or cooked for numerous health benefits. So you can call it a power packed breakfast.
Spices, green chilli coriander leaves or cilantro and some other ingredients made this chila spicy flavorful and mouthwatering. I have made it both with onion and tomato and without onion tomato. Both are delicious but without tomato its easy to flip. And looks better. I love the taste of both. You can make according to your taste.
