Simple though it is to prepare, there is an exotic feel to this Green Moong Dal and Spring Onion Paratha. Prepared with wholesome whole wheat flour, these parathas are stuffed with a delicious combination of cooked green moong dal and crunchy spring onions, perked up with common spice powders. The secret to getting a perfectly textured paratha is to cook the green moong dal to the right consistency, till it is soft and you are able to mash it with your fingers, but not too mushy. This way you will get a nice and grainy filling rather than a gooey one.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough using enough water.
- Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Keep aside.
- Divide the stuffing into 6 equal portions. Keep aside.
- Roll out each portion of the dough into a 75 mm. (3") diameter circle.
- Place one portion of the stuffing in the centre of the circle and bring together all the sides in the centre and seal tightly.
- Roll out again into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle, using a little whole wheat flour for rolling.
- Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook each paratha, using a little oil, till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Repeat steps 2 to 4 to make 5 more parathas.
- Serve immediately with fresh curds.
