BM #92 Day 4 - 

This version of Dal Paratha uses soaked and crushed whole moong beans and mixed with wheat flour and spices to make this thick and filling paratha.

Continuing with the next alphabet in the series, D for Dal Paratha. We loved the rustic feel of this paratha and was very filling.

Ingredients - 

Moong Beans / Pesalu 1/2 cup
Wheat Flour 1 1/4 cup (or as needed)
Salt and Red Chili Powder as needed
Green Chili Paste as needed
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup (or as preferred)
Ajwain / Vaamu 1 tsp
Ginger, grated 1 tsp
Coriander leaves, finely chopped 2-3 Tbsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and soak the Moong Beans overnight. Drain the beans, coarsely grind without adding any water. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, salt, red chili powder, ginger, green chili paste, ajwain, chopped onion, coriander leaves and the coarsely ground moong beans.

Knead into a stiff dough adding as little water as needed. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, the dough might become a little soft as the onions might release some moisture. Knead again sprinkling wheat flour if needed.

Pinch mini golf ball size portions of the dough and roll into thick discs dusting wheat flour as needed.

Heat a griddle and cook these discs one at a time spraying oil as needed. After both the sides are cooked, remove onto a hot box and continue with the rest of the dough.
