With every passing day my diet plans are changing as per my body’s requirement. These days i have been asked by my trainer to intake lots of lentils and fibers. Though i am not a lentil eater and sometimes hate eating dal. Both me and my son are not much fond of the lentil varieties. Hence the best way to intake them is to either make some sweet or some savory. Sweet being a completely NO NO to me, i have no other option left than to make some tempting, delicious savories that has lentils and can fulfill my nutritional requirements too.
One such lentil that provides great nutrition to the body and is a rich source of protein is Split yellow lentil aka Dhuli Mung Dal in Hindi. Though the whole green lentil has more fiber than the washed or split one, still the protein source remains the same.
Wheat flour dough, stuffed and rolled to make fat and thick parathas goes well with any kind of pickle, dips, chutneys or simple curd. Many people add flour in the cooked dal and knead together to make a dough and then make parathas. But i prefer stuffing them as it provides texture and even taste way better than those incorporated ones.
The stuffing i prepare usually contains the grains but if you find them mushy, it’s completely okay. Just make sure you remove the moisture from the dal completely, else while rolling out the parathas may tear or stick to the counter.
So without any further delay, let us quickly check out the ingredients required and the method of making these amazing healthy parathas…
