Oats and Green Dal Chila (Pan Cake)

Sharing is caring!

I had the leftover batter from Oats & Green dal Toast. Did not wanted to make the same thing again. So thought of converting it into a pan-cake. Added a little more water and salt. Made it frankie style for my child, so added a little crushed paneer. Hurray a protein packed breakfast, lunch or tiffin is ready.


  • 1 cup washed and soaked green mung dal
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup of coriander
  • 1-2 garlic cloves (optional)
  • 1/4 inch of ginger
  • 1-2 green chillies (as per taste)
  • salt as per taste
  • olive oil. (I think the original recipe uses butter, but I use olive oil)
  • Grated Home made Paneer (Optional)


  1. Wash and soak the green mung dal for 1 hour minimum. (Should be around 1 cup soaked)
  2. Grind mung dal, oats, coriander, garlic, ginger and green chillies into a smooth paste. Add water if required. Make the batter as per pancake/chila consistency.
  3. One can make this immediately, but I guess if you give some time for the batter around 4-5 hours it will taste more better. Since mine was a left over batter, It was lying in fridge for 24 hours.
  4. In a non-stick pan, brush little oil. Add a spoonful of batter and make a chila/pancake. Cook it for 4-5 minutes until it starts leaving the edges on a medium flame.
  5. Flip and turn again for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove from the pan and add crushed Home made Paneer.  Make a roll out of it.
  7. Serve it with corainder chutney or tomato ketchup or as it is.
