Dhal stuffed Paratha

I used to think that Wheat has less Carbs, but lately I found that was not true. So I wanted to make Paratha rich in protein thats how these parathas came to mind. Alrite now the Parathas look very normal but tastes differs.


Wheat Flour - 2 cups
Buttermilk - 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Butter Stick

For Dhal mixture:

Masoor Dhal -3/4 cup
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Pwd - 1/2 tsp
Chilli Pwd - 1/4 tsp
Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste


1. Wash the Dhal and boil it with Water, when the Dhal is partially cooked add Garam Masala, Coriander Powder, Chilli Pwd and mix well.
2. Try to keep the Dhal thick itself not making it fluidy, now add Salt and Lemon Juice and mix well.
3. In the mean time mix Wheat Flour, Salt and Buttermilk and make a dough and roll them into large balls.
4. When the Dhal is cooked well and all the liquid is evaporated make small balls.
5. Now press the dough and place the Dhal in it and roll them using a rolling pin and toss them on a hot tawa. When the Parathas get brown spots remove them from flame and swab it with the butter stick.

Alternately, mix the Dhal mixture with the Wheat dough add more Wheat flour to make a hard dough.

Serve with: Curry
