Rajani Rayudu's Dal Paratha

 Yum Yum!! made with left over Tomato dal. Kids will love it or for get-together too. Easy peasy in making.........try it out and let me know. thanks!


Chapati flour - 3 rice cups
Left over Tomato Dal - 1 and 1/2 rice cups
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Water - to mix the dough (I added almost 1 rice cup, but depends on flour, so use accordingly)


First mix four ingredients in a wide bowl. To this add water bit by bit, just the way as chapati dough consistency. Roll into golf ball size. keep cover and rest in fridge for 15 mins.

Heat tawa, mean while roll each ball in to thin round with the flour, cook on hot tawa on both sides using a little ghee to smear. Wrap it in tea towel put these in celloware tight container or keep in Roti basket and Serve immediately.

Serve with Lime pickle or with Radish Raita or Mutter Paneer or serve just as it is, still tastes good.

Left over Tomato Dal (the way I made it):

In a pressure cooker add 1 steel glass (small cup) washed toor dal, 2 m tomatoes (cut in half), 1 tsp chilli powder, 1/2 tsp turmeric, handful of deep fried onions, 2 slit green chillies and 2 and 1/2 steel glass (small cup) of water, put the lid with weight on top and pressure cook for 5-6 whistles.

Once cooked, remove the lid add salt to taste and blend with stick blender.

Now in a seperate pan for seasoning, add 1 tbsp oil, once heated add 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp urad dal, 4 split red chillies, 1 sprig of curry leaves. do seasoning and add it above dal with 1/2 rice cup water.

Once boiled switch off.

***Serve for dinner immediately and remaining dough, keep in fridge and do Parathas.
