Moong Dal chilla is a diet recipe. If you indulge in some high caloried food during this marriage season, a two days No-Cereal Diet (NCD) will help you compensate the extra calories and help you to maintain your weight.

Moong Chilla along with fresh fruits, salad, roasted chanas and butter-milk in your diet helps you to compensate the extra calories gained. The taste of chillas is also awesome. You may have it with plain curd also.
