Dal Paratha (Lentil Flatbread)

dal paratha

Have some leftover dal from last night's dinner. It's sitting pretty in your refrigerator with no takers. Don't know what to do with it? I have an idea. Make delicious dal paratha out of it.
            Recipe of dal paratha
            1 cup cooked dal (lentils)
            1 1/2 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
            Salt to taste
             ¼ tsp turmeric powder
            2 green chillies- finely chopped
            1/2 tsp carom seeds (ajwain)
            Chopped coriander leaves
            Oil to shallow fry
1. In a deep bowl, mix all the ingredients except oil. Don't add any water. Use dal to knead the dough. Add enough flour to make pliable dough. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside for 20 minutes.
2. Take a ball (peda) out of the dough and roll out into a 6 inch round paratha.
3. Heat a tava (griddle) and cook this paratha on it from both sides brushing with oil. Cook till golden brown and crisp. Do the same with rest of the dough making several dal
paratha. Serve hot dal paratha with curd.
