  4. Hello ma’am,
    Your recipes are so easy to make and indeed easy to follow
    but this time when I tried this the chillas fell apart.
    What could have been the problem?

    • Thanks Zainab. The oats cheela batter had become very thin. Cheela Batter should be of medium consistency. you could have added some more besan (gram flour) to thicken the batter.
