Dhal Chapathi | Roti Paratha Recipes

Chapathi with dhal is an usual combo, but using cooked dhal in chapathi itself, not very usual. The other day I had some cooked moong dhal, leftover from doing Sago Upma (recipe coming soon) and wanted to put a best use of it. It was too little to go as a side dish and so I added it directly to the wheat flour to make chapathis. I added onions and chilli powder to spice it up and I loved this quick and easy chapathi. Makes a great breakfast or a lunch box recipe.


Ingredients:
Whole Wheat flour/Atta flour - 2 cups
Moong dhal (cooked) - 1/2 cup
Onion - chopped fine - 3/4 cup
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - a big pinch
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Method:
Boil moong dhal with 2 cups of water and a pinch of salt until soft but firm. Heat 1 tsp of oil and add the onion. Saute until transparent and add chilli powder, cumin powder and salt and saute for 2 mins. Add the onion mixture and cooked dhal to the wheat flour. Sprinkle water and knead to a soft dough. Coat with little oil and set aside for 30 mins. Take golf ball sized dough and roll to thin chapathis. Heat a hot tawa and place the rolled out chapathis and cook on both sized sprinkling oil. Serve hot with any curry of your choice or just yogurt and pickle.
