Meetha Chila is a popular Rajasthani dish that is made using wheat. It is generally served with lunch or dinner, mainly to add a bit of sweetness to the food platter, even though the Chila is not considered a regular dessert.
- Wheat flour (atta) (2 cups)
- Sugar (1 cup)
- Milk (½ cup)
- Green cardamom (hari elaichi), powder (1 tsp)
- Oil (for frying)
- Water (1 cup)
- In a bowl, add the wheat flour, sugar and milk. Mix and whisk well.
- Then, slowly pour in the water. Keep whisking so that no lumps remain.
- Next, add in the elaichi powder and mix well. Allow the mixture to stand for about 10 minutes.
- Heat a not-stick tava and grease it with a little oil.
- Then, scoop up some of the mixture in a ladle or a spoon and pour it over the hot tava. Gently spread out this mixture, moving in a circular manner like while making a dosa.
- Sprinkle some oil onto the Chila.
- After about a minute, flip the Chila and take it off the flame as soon as it becomes golden brown in colour.
- After about a minute or so, flip the Chila and cover with a lid.
- Serve hot.
