Channa Dhal stuffed Paratha

I always try different types of stuffed paratha for my son's lunch box and one such hit is channa dhal stuffed paratha.Channa dhal paratha is a simple and delicious parathas which is a good option for lunch box with pickle and yogurt.It has a unique flavor and taste which is a real feast for the taste buds.The recipe as follows...
Ingredients

For the Filling
IngredientQuantity
Channa dhal1cup
Onion1no.(medium size)
Ginger(finely chopped)1tsp
Green chilly4nos.
Turmeric powder1/2tsp
Garam masala powder1/2tsp
Coriander leaves(finely chopped)1tbs
Salta pinch
Oil2tsp

For the dough
IngredientQuantity
Wheat flour11/2cups
All purpose flour1/2cup
Saltto taste
Waterapproximately 1cup(to knead)
Oil1+2tbs(to cook parathas)


Method

                          Mix the flours,salt,oil and add water,knead it to a soft and smooth dough with water.Keep it covered with a damp cloth for 1/2 hour.
Meanwhile prepare the filling by boiling the channa dhal in a pressure cooker for a whistle or a open pot till it is tender.Drain the water and coarsely grind it in a blender or mash it with a masher,keep aside.
Keep a pan in a medium flame and crackle the cumin seeds then add green chilles and ginger.Saute the onion till transparent with a pinch of salt.
Now add the salt,turmeric powder and garam masala powder,stir it then ground channa dhal,and give it a mix.Finally add the coriander leaves and turn off the stove.The filling is ready.
Divide the dough and the filling into equal portions,flatten the dough to a 3 inch disc and keep the stuffing in it.Gently pull the edges to the center,seal it and flatten it.Now on a floured surface, roll each flattened ball gently to a desired thickness.
Heat a griddle on a medium flame and cook the parathas both sides.
Serve it with pickle and yogurt.
Enjoy.....

  • Ginger and garlic paste can be added for extra taste and flavor.
  • A tsp of carom seeds can be mixed in the flour while making the dough which gives a nice aroma and aids digestion.
  • Amchur powder can also be added for extra tangy taste.
  • Dusting it with all purpose flour(maida) helps the rolling easy.
