Moong Dal - Spring Onion Paratha

Moong Dal - Spring Onion Paratha
  • Moong dal, also known as yellow lentils, is a type of pulse that is widely used in Indian cuisine. It is a small, yellow-coloured lentil that is high in protein and dietary fiber, and is a good source of vitamins and minerals such as iron, potassium, and folate.
  • Moong dal is very versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. It can be used to make dal, which is a popular Indian lentil soup, as well as side dishes, snacks, and desserts. It can also be used as a filling for parathas or stuffed vegetables.
  • To prepare moong dal, you should first rinse it thoroughly in cold water and then soak it in water for at least 30 minutes. This will help to soften the dal and reduce the cooking time. After soaking, drain the water and add the dal to a pot with fresh water. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer until the dal is soft and cooked through. This usually takes about 20-25 minutes.
  • Once the dal is cooked, you can use it to prepare various dishes such as dal fry, moong dal khichdi, moong dal halwa, and more. Moong dal is also commonly used in Indian cuisine as a filling for dosas, samosas, and kachoris.

    1/4 tsp Garam Masala Powder
    Salt to taste
    1 1/2 cups Wheat Flour
    Water as required

  • Instructions:
    1. Soak the moong dal in water for about 1 hour. After that, drain the water and grind the dal to a coarse paste in a food processor.

    3. Add wheat flour to the mixture and knead it into a soft dough. Add water as required to make the dough smooth and pliable.
    4. Divide the dough into small, equal-sized balls. Roll each ball into a circle of about 5-6 inches in diameter using a rolling pin and dusting flour as required.
    5. Heat a tawa or a griddle over medium heat. Place the rolled paratha on the tawa and cook until small bubbles appear on the surface.
    6. Flip the paratha and brush oil or ghee on the cooked side. Cook until the second side is golden brown.
