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.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ritu : You are partially right. These parathas will be good for 24 hours if you are mostly in a a/c train or plane and then arrive and put it in a fridge. Then they work otherwise there will be an issue. Thanks.
