To make Protein-rich Chilla more healthy, use homemade paneer and soak the batter using the whey of the paneer. I have recently shared the Homemade Paneer recipe. Click here for the recipe. 

Soaking besan with curd enhances the taste, makes digestion easy, and makes soft chilla. If you do not have curd, you can use buttermilk too. Onions in this recipe give a nice crunch. To make no onion, no garlic paneer chilla, replace the onion with grated carrot, cabbage, or beetroot. The addition of leafy vegetables makes more healthy and soft chilla.
