Spicy Spinach Chilla

by thecurrytheory

Hello there,

This recipe is a fantastic mix of gluten free ingredients that are not only great for your health but also amazing in taste.

My favorite trend of gluten free food are the savory Oat chillas but this one is up a notch and closer to being more on the spicy side yet savory with a side of sweet sugared plain yogurt dipping sauce.
