Black Bean Stuffed Paratha

Love stuffed paratha especially with potatoes, however i do often stuffed parathas with any stuffing. I always want to give a try black beans stuffed paratha. I get black beans rarely eventhough i dont have any valuable reason for it but still whenever i go to Indian groceries i'll get varieties of dry beans. Having dry beans at home is definitely very handy, i always soak huge quantites of dry beans and arrange them in freezer for further use, and its quite a routine for me. Obviously i'll always have soaked ready to cook frozen beans in my freezer.Finally am done with spiced black beans stuffed paratha few days back for our dinner.Trust me, this fabulous stuffed paratha makes an excellent filling meal as well.

Black bean stuffed Paratha
Am running my first week of blogging marathon with an interesting theme, my theme for this week is Indian bread basket. Obviously Indian breads are very well known around the world for their uniqueness and for their nutritional value. I'll be sharing three interesting Indian breads and stay tune to check them. You can serve this black bean stuffed paratha simply just with pickle or with thick curd. However you can still have this paratha with a lipsmacking sabji.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#49.

Does this recipe call for 1 cup of cooked black beans,
1 cup of black beans cooked?

There would be a significant difference in volume of beans.

Thanks for posting this interesting healthy recipe.
