Here’s Why You Must Give Foodstrong Sprouted Moong Instant Chilla Mix
From taste to macronutrient composition, and everything in between, here’s what we loved.
‘Chilly Chat’ is what they promised and ‘Chilly Chat’ is what we got! The prepared chillas resembled the exciting flavor profile of a homemade sprouted moong chaat
It was a well-rounded blend of savory flavors.
In one word- perfection! Fluffy and airy from the center and crisped around the edges, these sprouted moong chillas were cooked to perfection fairly easily.
3. Ease Of Cooking
Right from making the batter to making the chillas, your time in the kitchen with this premix is going to be seamless.
The scoop that comes with the premix ensures equal portions of the premix and water are added.
We used a non-stick pan for preparing these chillas and loved how quickly they fluffed up and browned. As mentioned on the pack, the ‘10 minutes’ claim is delivered as promised. It took us less than 10 minutes to prepare the batter and turn it into a chilla.
4. Quality of Ingredients
Sprouted moong flour, jowar flour, rice flour, curd powder, and spice blends are all ingredients that go in the making.
Why sprouted moong? Nuts, seeds, pulses, whole grains- these have a layer at the surface that softens once they are soaked/sprouted and cooked. If the soaking/sprouting processes are skipped, the digestion and assimilation of nutrients either remains incomplete or becomes challenging for the digestive system.
Additionally, the premix is devoid of preservatives, additives, and gluten.
5. Macronutrient Composition
With one 150-gram pack, you get 524 Kcal, a whopping 22 grams of good quality plant-based protein, 102 grams of carbohydrates (of which 5 grams is fiber), and 3 grams of fat.
A box holding three 150-gram pouches is priced at Rs 360.
