Sumptuous whole wheat parathas stuffed with a lip-smacking filling of soaked and sautéed green moong dal simply spiced with fennel seeds, turmeric and chilli powders. You might wonder what use a quarter teaspoon of turmeric and half a teaspoon of fennel could be, but these wonder ingredients work magically to enhance the aroma of the Dal ke Parathe when they get cooked on the griddle.

I loved this recipe a lot! Fennel seeds play a vital role and induce a nice flavour. This is unique as I had never tried dal parathas before using green moong dal. Thank you!

These parathas tastes best when had with a bowl of curds. Moong dal and fennel seeds lends its taste completely to the parathas. It is necessary to have this parathas immediately or you may feel dry if had later..
