Healthful moong dal takes the form of a tasteful paratha here! Cooked moong dal, along with potato for binding, onions for crunch and a range of spices for added flavour, makes a great stuffing for parathas that are crisp from outside and soft inside. You will enjoy the unique combination of spices in this protein and iron rich paratha, especially the thoughtful addition of crushed coriander seeds and amchur.
