Leftover Dal Paratha

Dal Paratha Recipe with step by step pictures: Soft and flaky paratha with the flavors of onion, green chilies, fresh coriander, spices such as red chili powder, coriander powder, cumin seeds, etc, and richness and taste of dal is the dal paratha. Paratha is a shallow fried Indian flatbread. The dal paratha is prepared using the leftover dal. I have used the leftover moong dal to make the dal paratha. Generally yogurt is added to make the dal paratha. However I have always never added the same. These parathas are so soft and juicy from the insides, yet crispy from the outside. These dal parathas can be served with some chilled yogurt and green chutney or some pickle and chai.

Ingredients for Leftover Dal Paratha Recipe

Leftover Dal: I have used the leftover moong dal to make the parathas. You can make these parathas with chana dal as well as arhar dal too. The quantity of dal needed to make the parathas depend upon the consistency of dal. I use 2 cups of leftover dal with 2 cups of whole wheat flour. I do not use yogurt or water to prepare the dough. Further the spices too should be adjusted. If the dal is too spicy, add the spices accordingly to make parathas.

Whole Wheat Flour: Generally recipes call for gram flour too. I like to use only whole wheat flour. However if you like your parathas crispier, you can also add in a little rice flour.

Spices: One and a half tsp of salt is enough to season 2 cups of whole wheat flour. The dal has its own salt. Other than this red chili powder, coriander powder and cumin seeds are used to season the parathas. You can adjust the quantity of these spices as per your liking.

Fresh Ingredients: Onions, green chilies, fresh coriander leaves are added to flavor the dal ka paratha.

Oil: I have used oil to fry the parathas. You can also use ghee for it. Further I have greased the parathas with little ghee.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
