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.

Masaledaar spicy moong dal filling is delicious by itself. When stuffed in the parathas, it tastes even better. The stuffing is so yummy, that i am sure while making also, it will be difficult for you to stop by having it just like that.. These parathas tastes great with curds.
