Few weekend mornings are lazy and laidback. You seldom feel the urge to cook something elaborate but sometimes you have to think of something so you can make breakfast special without breaking a sweat.

At home, my kids are not normally very enthusiastic about these chillas so the best solution is to give them something which they really love to eat. Yes, you are absolutely right, the solution is paneer.

So when I stuffed this chilla with paneer and a veggie mixture they had their breakfast without complaining. This is an awesome protein packed breakfast which is really simple to make. So friends if you are not already making it please do try. I am sure that you will love it.
