1 cup Wheat Flour
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
½ cup Moong Dal
A pinch Asafoetida
Salt to taste
A pinch Turmeric Powder
1/4 tsp Red Chilli Powder
1tbsp Coriander Leaves (finely chopped)
2 Green Chillies (finely chopped)
Oil/Ghee

How to make Moong Dal Paratha:

Mix some oil and salt to the wheat flour and make soft dough by adding water.
Soak the moong dal in water for some time and then cook it.
Now, heat oil in a pan and then add cumin seeds and asafoetida.
When the seeds splutter, add the chopped green chillies and then add turmeric powder, red chilli powder, cooked dal, chopped coriander and salt.
Mix the entire mixture and keep stirring till it becomes dry. Keep aside this dry mixture and let it cool.
Take a little portion of dough, knead it to a ball and then roll it in the shape of a small puri.
Close the sides of this puri after filling it with the dry dal filling. Now roll it into a thick round paratha.
Cook this paratha with oil on a tawa till both the sides become golden brown.
Serve dal paratha hot with chutney, curd or curry.
