1. Moong dal chilla
On the first position comes my all-time favorite, the moong dal chilla recipe. But I have a twist for you to make it further protein-rich and weight-loss friendly.
The moong dal chilla will have paneer (Cottage Cheese) stuffing. As we know, paneer and moong dal are rich in protein, so this recipe is the perfect diet for weight loss.
I mostly enjoyed eating it as a healthy snack. You can have moong dal chilla in the morning or evening breakfast.
In case you are running out of time, you can ignore the paneer stuffing and go with just plain moong dal chilla and enjoy it with your favorite mint or coriander leaves chutney.
