Dal Masala Paratha

Recently i got an opportunity to buy a packet of whole masoor dal and i love making dishes with that whole masoor dal, today i tried this dal masala paratha using those whole masoor dal, kasuri methi leaves and with some roasted ajwain seed powder.This parathas tastes marvellous and soft with mild ajwain flavour..We enjoyed having this yummy paratha with spicy coconut chutney for our dinner and this paratha turned out truly awesome..As most of us know that ajwain seeds tends to help for easy digestion, i loved the addition of few roasted ajwain seed powder in this paratha.Voila,one more healthy paratha to try and taste from my kitchen.

Dal Masala Paratha

1cup Whole masoor dal
2cups Whole wheat flour
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1tbsp Roasted ajwain seed powder
2tbsp Kasuri methi (dry fenugreek leaves)
Salt
Oil

Pressure the whole masoor dal with turmeric powder and enough water until the dals turned soft, keep aside and let them cool..Once the dal gets cool,drain the cooked dal water and keep aside, mash the cooked dal and take them with whole wheat flour, roasted ajwain seed powder, kasuri methi and salt, with dal cooked water and half a cup of hot water, knead everything as smooth and soft dough..Make 10-12medium sized balls and roll as round discs using flour and rolling pin...

Heat few drops of oil in a tawa, drop gently the flattened paratha,cook the paratha on both sides, drizzle oil if needed..serve with any sort of spicy side dish..
