Dal Paratha

Dal Paratha is a great way of boosting the protein content of your poli. Instead of using plain wheat flour add cooked turdal to it. I happened to have some leftover cooked turdal so I decided to make dal paratha.

You will need
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cup cooked turdal
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. turmeric powder
salt to taste
1 tbsp. olive oil

Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl.

Using water knead into a dough. Using a little olive oil on you palm knead again to soften the kneaded dough. Divide into lemon sized balls.

Roll each ball on a working surface using a rolling pin.

Sprinkle wheat flour to prevent it from sticking and roll it out to a 7 in poli.

Place the paratha on a hot griddle pan. Cook until brown spots appear on the surface. Flip it over and cook the other side.

Serve hot with any side dish like curry, bhaji or dal.
