Toordal Paratha

I love to make varieties of paratha either by combining greens or veggies or else both veggies and greens together and i rarely make parathas with dals, since ever i tried out Dal Masala Paratha, i was planning to make some parathas with toor dal and finally i prepared them today for our dinner, this parathas turned out super soft and we loved it..I just added some ajwain seeds,kasuri methi, cumin seeds along with cooked dal and wheat flour to prepare this wonderful looking parathas, i just served them with vegetable kurma for our dinner and both together turned out dinner simply filling,healthy and marvellous...Sending to Srivalli's Breakfast Mela & to Kiran's CWF-Toordal guest hosted by Suma..

Toordal Paratha

2cups Wheat flour
1/4cup Yogurt
1/2cup Cooked toordal
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Ajwain seeds/Omam
1tbsp Kasuri methi
Salt
Oil for cooking

Mix the wheat flour,cumin seeds, ajwain seeds,kasuri methi and salt in a bowl, add gradually the cooked toordal and yogurt, knead everything as smooth dough (add water if needed)..Keep aside for 15minutes...Make 8 medium sized balls from the dough,dust the balls with enough flour and roll as round parathas using 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..

I use left over dal for this kind of paratha. Addition of kasuri methi is a cool idea

What a nice idea. Have to try this for my daughter's lunch box since she refuses to carry any sidedish with rotis.
