Leftover dal paratha recipe, dal paratha

Leftover dal paratha is a great dinner idea using leftover dal from the afternoon. Step by step pictures and quick video recipe.

I have heard about stuffed dal paratha but leftover dal paratha is new to me until last year. It’s so simple yet delicious and quick to prepare. Mostly we make dal once in a week and it usually get over as Aj loves dal. He have it twice a day. But when he doesn’t want rice for dinner, I make this dal paratha these days. It’s quite filling and goes well with simply curd and pickle. If there is cauliflower curry or ladies finger curry, I love to have with it too. This time it was chana masala with roti(matic) for boys and for me dal paratha.

Since we add all spices in dal, its upto you what you add in the paratha. You can even add onions. But I love to keep it simple just by adding some masala powders. If you want more spicy, you can add very finely chopped green chilli and lots of chopped coriander too. My dal is thick, so simply top it with flour and make dough for the paratha. I am big fan of parathas and totally in love with this as of now. Do try it out if you have not yet.

Notes

  • The wheat flour quantity varies according to water content in dal.
  • You can increase dal quantity too if you want.
  • I like to poke the parathas here and there with spatula so that it gets cooked easily.
  • Cook in medium flame after flipping.
