  • 1 - onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 - green chillies

How to Make Stuffed Channa Dal Parathas

  • Pressure-cook the channa dal with water, salt and turmeric for about 15 minutes.
  • Switch to low flame after one whistle.
  • Drain the water and keep the dal aside.
  • Chop onions, green chillies and fresh cilantro and add to the boiled dal along with the other spices.
  • Mix well but do not mash the mixture.
  • Take the dough and make 2 equal sized small lemon balls. Flatten one and place some of the dal mixture on it and spread.
  • Make another roll from the dough, flatten it and cover over the mixture. Close the two dough rounds nicely with your fingers, sealing the edges.
  • Slowly roll a paratha without letting the mixture spill out.
  • Fry on a non-stick tawa, ensuring that both the sides are crisp.
  • Spread some butter on top and serve with curd.
