Healthy breakfast option for Kids

Sooji Chillah

This breakfast is simple. It is very similar to what Malini had posted some time back. This however is with Semolina (Sooji). It is quick to make, easy to have, even on the go, and easy on the stomach. A big hit with my son.


Serves 6-8 Chillahs

Semolina (Sooji) 1 cup

Sour Curd (Dahi) beaten 1/3 cup

Water 1- 1.5 cups

Coriander leaves (Dhania patta) 4-5 stems

Onion (Optional)


Salt to taste 

Mix semolina and curd with 1 cup of water and let it stand for about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, chop the onion and coriander leaves. If the consistency is thick, (after you have let it stand) add some more water and stir well to get a smooth batter. Ensure there are no lumps. Add the chopped onion, coriander leaves and salt to the batter. Grease the surface of a heated frying pan or a tawa, preferably non-stick, with ½-tea spoon of oil. A heated pan is a chef’s best friend. Reduce the flame, put a ladle full of the batter into the frying pan, and spread it in circular motion with the back of the spatula. When the chillah (the side on the surface of the pan has changed color) from white to brown, flip it over and let this side also be cooked. Add few drops of oil from the side of the chillah, if it is sticking to the frying pan/tawa. Serve hot.
