Cabbage and dal paratha is a brilliant combination of cereals, pulses and vegetables. This balanced meal can be made more nutritious by replacing half the wheat flour with soya flour or nachni flour. You are sure to enjoy the fine balance in this paratha with the softness of dal dotted with crisp slivers of cabbage and aromatic ingredients like fennel and mint.
