URAD DAL PARATHAS


Ever tried urad dal stuffed parathas... they are delicious somewhat like eating stuffed kachoris. Make them as spicy as you like them and enjoy with curd and pickle.

Ingredients:
Urad dal .... 1 cup  ( use the peeled and split one)
Wheat flour .. 2 cups or more  as needed
Turmeric powder .. 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder .... 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder . 1/2 tsp
Garam masala ...... 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder .. 1/4 tsp
Amchoor powder .. 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves .. finely chopped 
Salt .... to taste 
Oil or ghee for roasting.

Method:
1. Soak urad dal for 1-2 hours. 
2. Wash it and cook with 1/4 cup water and a little salt. If needed sprinkle a little more water.The grains have to remain separate and not mushy.
3. Mix the spice powders mentioned above and coriander leaves. Set it aside to cool.
4. Meanwhile, knead the wheat flour with water adding a little salt and oil. Make a soft dough.
5. Roll out a roti to a puri size, apply a little oil and put a spoonful of dal in the center.
6. Gather the edges into a bundle and seal them with your fingers.
7. Roll out again carefully and lightly. 
8. Heat a griddle / tawa and roast the parathas spooning a little ghee or oil to make them crisp.


                      Serve hot with pickle and curd.
