Dhall Paratha

I wanted to try this one few weeks before. But I tried this last sunday and it came out pretty well. I got the recipe from Bhawana's blog.. Here is the recipe I followed to make this parathas.

  1. Wheat flour - 2 or 3 cups
  2. Channa dhall - 1 cup
  3. Red chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
  6. Asafoetida powder a pinch
  7. Oil - 1 tsp
  8. Cumin - 1/2 tsp
  9. Oil or ghee - for Parathas

Soak channa dhall over night. When you are planning to make this for lunch, then in the morning knead the dough adding required amount of salt for the dough and keep it aside. Drain the channa dhall from water and keep it aside. Pre heat the oil in a pan, splutter cumin seeds, add the red chillies, coriander leaves and asafoetida powder and fry it for a minute. Now add the filtered channa dhall to it and fry it till the water it fully absorbed. Let it cool and grind it nicelyadding required amount of salt to it. This is the filling. Now divide the dough in to equal parts, flatten it into a small circle, fill it with the dhall, cover it and flatten it to the size you want. Cook it in a hot pan, on both sides, applying oil or ghee according to your taste.

This was our lunch on Sunday along with white rice. Surprisingly, my twins also had dhall paratha, little bit rice, dhall, raita and little bit dhum aloo..

Looks healthy and delicious,normally I just mix the dhal with the dough and proceed as normally roti, that is faster for me :-)
