Ajwain & Urad Dal Paratha

I never get bored of making parathas aka rotis with different variations, one of our recent dinner was this super flavourful,nutritious,soft and yummy parathas. If you never had a chance to prepare urad dal parathas, definitely you guys are missing a super soft parathas,you should give a try to them. These parathas tastes fabulous when served simply with spicy coconut chutney and more tasty when served with kurmas prepared with both veggies or meats.

The addition of ajwain helps for easy digestion also at the same time this enhance the flavour of this dish. These parathas are really very quick to prepare and definitely a nutritious rotis to enjoy anytime of the day. I used split deskinned white urad dal for making this parathas, just cook them in pressure cooker,grind them as fine paste and make parathas with them.



2cups Wheat flour
1/4cup Split urad dal ( pressure cooked)
1tbsp Ajwain seeds (crushed)
1/2cup Warm water
Salt
Oil for cooking
Flour for dusting

Take the wheat flour,crushed ajwain seeds,cooked and grounded urad dal paste with salt in a large bowl,gradually add the warm water and knead as smooth and soft dough.

Keep aside half an hour, make medium sized balls from the dough,dust with flour and roll them as parathas..Meanwhile heat a tawa, drop gently the rolled parathas,drizzle few drops of oil,cook on both sides until they gets well cooked.

Enjoy warm with any sort of chutneys or kurmas.

Looks so very good. I would have never thought of using urad dal in a chapati. Will give it a try for sure.

These look amazing. I attempted making chapati but had difficulty. I ended up with a somewhat burnt pan. It would be so nice to have you as a neighbour to give me cooking lessons on Indian cuisine .
