Nutritious jowar & tomato chilla
This breakfast dish is a simple and filling option that one might try if they are bored of their regulars. Also, our healthy take on it is to replace chickpea flour with jowar (sorghum) flour. This wholesome dish will be surely winning hearts, if it a kid or an adult. While, jowar boosts digestion and aids heart health, tomatoes are great source of antioxidants and also adds colour to your plate.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all jowar flour, oats flour and wheat flour with 3/4 cup water and combine them together to make a thick batter.
Now, add the chopped tomatoes, onions, chillies and coriander
Mix these well into a pourable consistency.
Preheat the non-stick tawa and brush a little oil on it .
Keep the temperature of our stove to low.
Pour a ladle full of the batter into the nonstick tawa and spread it out evenly, in a circular motion.
Let it cook for 2 mins on either side or until you achieve a brown layer at each side.
Repeat the previous two procedures to make more chillas/pancakes.
