Jhatpat Dal Paratha

Got up in the morning wondering "what for breakfast?"
Made poha yesterday, upma the day before and everyone wanted something home cooked, so I guess paratha was the only filling option.

I had cooked dal for dal tadka but no one was excited about simple dal and chawal. So I decided to use the humble tuvar dal to make parathas which were quite filling and loaded with proteins. You can use moong dal or channa dal or urad dal or simply mixed dals. This can be a very easy breakfast to make when You are on the run, just keep aside some of the cooked dal in the fridge and the next day you have a nutritious breakfast.

Kids love this paratha. Just spread some khatta meetha chunda or some cheese spread on it and make a roll. Tastes good even when cold, so it can be ideal for kiddies tiffins.


1 cup         Tuvar Dal
1               Onion
2               Green Chillies
6 to 7        Garlic Cloves
1/2 cup     Coriander leaves
3 cups       Wheat Atta
1 tsp         Dhania Powder
1/2 tsp      Jeera Powder
1 tsp         Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp      Haldi Powder
1 tsp         Namak Shamak


Cook the Tuvar dal in 1 and 1/2 cup of water in a pressure cooker till done.

Chop the garlic, onions and coriander leaves finely.

In a big vessel take the tuvar dal, add the haldi powder, jeera powder, dhania powder, red chilli powder, onions, green chillies, coriander leaves, salt and the Wheat Atta. Knead the dough well. You can add a tsp of oil to the dough to make it a little soft.

Now roll into small parathas and roast on a tawa applying a little ghee.

Serve hot with dahi.
