Dal Methi Paratha


      I made this dal methi paratha last week,after seeing Priya's dal paratha.I liked that recipe very much and also her parathas looks so soft n good.Thank you Priya for the recipe.I didn't tried her recipe as such and wanted to make it even more an interesting way by adding some seasoned onions along with fresh methi leaves to it.(she used dried methi leaves powder).The parathas came out really really good,soft and so aromatic.I simply served with coconut chutney.any curry or gravy will suits for the paratha.Here we go..

Ingredients
  1. whole wheat flour/Atta    2 cups
  2. Cooked n mashed Tuvar dal    3/4 -1 cup
  3. Methi leaves   2 handful
  4. Onion   1 medium(finely chopped)
  5. Ginger   1 tsp chopped or grated
  6. Cumin seeds   1/2 tsp
  7. Ajwain/omam    1/2 tsp
  8. curry leaves   few
  9. salt   to taste
  10. Oil   2-3 tsp
Method
  • Take a wide vessel,add flour,ajwain seeds and salt mix well and keep aside.
 
  • Heat a tsp of oil in a pan,add cumin seeds let it splutter and add finely chopped onions,grated ginger and stir for a while.
  • Then add the curry leaves and methi leaves and fry for a minute and turn off the stove.
  • Let the methi onion mixture cool for sometime then add it to the prepared flour and mix everything well.
  • Add dal little by little and knead it to a smooth dough...sprinkle little water and don't add more water then it vl be hard to roll them.
  • Since dal will have all the moisture to the dough ..so add very little waer and knead well.lastly add 2-3 tsp of oil and knead well to a smooth., pliable dough  and cover the dough and keep aside for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes divide the dough in to 12 equal balls and roll each ball like a regular chapathi but make it little thick and toast them in a hot griddle with few drops of oil/ghee and cook on both sides.
  • Serve the toasted hot parathas with chutney or any curry or simple pickled raitha.
Note: You can also use cooked n mashed moongdal...instead of methi you can try with any greens.Adding ajwain gives nice aroma n taste to the paratha..first time i tried adding ajwain i liked it a lot...once again thank you so much Priya.
