Aloo Moongdal Paratha

As i told earlier most of our dinner goes for almost oil-less rotis, but sometime i manage to make some stuffed parathas with our favourite aloo stuffing. Here we start again three days of blogging marathon, so this week's theme is gonna be cooking with moongdal. Obviously next two day's recipes are going to be foods prepared either with whole green gram or with split yellow moongdal. For the first day of blogging marathon, i went for this delicious and super filling potato and whole green gram stuffed paratha.

I prepared the stuffing with cooked potatoes and cooked green grams which i spiced simply with onions,greenchillies,garam masala powder and chaat masala. This paratha doesnt even need any side dish to enjoy,the stuffing itself will replace the side dishes usually we make for rotis. Check out the other marathoners running this 21st edition of blogging marathon here.


2cups Whole wheat flour
1/2cup Warm water
1tbsp Oil
Salt

For stuffing:
2nos Potatoes (cooked & mashed)
1/2cup Whole greengram (cooked & mashed)
1nos Onion (chopped)
2nos Green chillies(chopped)
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/2tsp Chaat masala
Salt

Take the wheat flour,oil and salt together in a bowl,add the warm water and knead everything as a stiff and smooth dough,keep aside for half an hour..

Take the cooked potatoes,cooked greengram,chopped green chillies,garam masala powder,chaat masala and salt, mix everything well and keep aside.

Saute the chopped onions with enough oil and add it to the already prepared potato-greengram mixture,mix well.

Make medium sized balls from the dough, flatten them as small circles with the rolling pin, drop enough aloo-greengram masala and cover the masala by sealing the edges of the flatten dough.

Dust with flour and roll them gently as parathas.

Heat a tawa, drop this flattened paratha over the hot tawa, drizzle few drops of oil and cook until they get well cooked..

Serve hot..
