I really enjoyed this easy to mix and quick to cook meal. Loved it so much I ate it three days in a row!
This will be a staple in our house.
The spicy chilla mix is my go to meal when I need something yummy and convenient. It's super versatile - I like to throw in tomato paste and any chopped veggies I have in my fridge. But also great plain with just the right amount of kick. Definitely a new pantry staple!
I am a big chilla fan and grew up eating tomato chilla at home. Ojaswe chillas were better than the ones I had back home. Since the chickpeas are locally sourced, the chillas have a lovely, strong, and fresh aroma of the chickpeas that you can smell as soon as you open the packet. The flour is coarsely ground which lend a slightly crispier texture in the cooked chillas (something that I actually prefer) than the ones back home (which are made from finely ground chickpeas). The flavor is nutty, intensely umami and I am in love with them!
I recently started doing a slow-carb diet for Jan and was given these as a gift. Being grain and sugar free they fit my diet perfectly. I've been using them as a carb supplement to things I normally eat with bread like soups and stews.
I look forward to trying them as their own dish with additional ingredients.
