What do you do with the left over dal and rice the next day? Well I make these yummy parathas out of them for breakfast. In fact I purposely make extra dal sometimes to make these for the next day breakfast!!
The below measurement is from my last preparation, but you can make it as per your taste and the quantity left over; the only rule is to take only as much wheat flour which would mix well with the dal without the need of adding any water and the dal should be little thick in consistency. Due to the dal the parathas are healthy and they come out very soft without adding any oil in the dough.
Whole Wheat Flour : 1 Cup
Cooked Toor Dal : 3/4 Cup
Cooked Rice : 1/2 Cup [Optional]
Onion : 1/4 Cup
Coriander Leaves : 2 Tbsp [Optional]
Fresh Methi Leaves/Kasoori Methi : 2-3 Tbsp [Optional]
Turmeric Powder(Haldi) : 1/2 Tsp
Red Chilli Powder : 2 Tsp
Salt to Taste
1. Mix all the ingredients and make a dough.
2. Divide them into small balls of about 1 1/2 inch diameter and roll them. The above measurement makes about 7-8 balls.
3. Shallow fry on both sides with very little oil on a tava or griddle and serve with any pickle or chutney of your choice.
