Print Recipe
By Serves: 4 Prep Time: 15 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 cup of split and washed yellow moong daal
  • ½ inch grated ginger
  • 2-3 finely chopped green chillies
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp dry mango powder
  • ½ tsp garam masala powder
  • Some finely chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste
  • Soft Whole wheat dough



Soak the moong daal for 3-4 hours or overnight (as this is generally had for breakfast)


Put the daal in the cooker, with a little bit of water, enough for two whistles. Add some salt


Switch of the cooker after 2 whistles and let the cooker open on its own


The daal should be cooked but should still be separate. If you eat the daalat that moment out of the cooker, it will have a bite and should not be a paste.


Strain the daal of any water


Put the dry daal into a bowl


Add the ginger, green chillies red chilli powder, dry mango powder, garam masala powder and fresh coriander


Make 8 balls out of the dough and divide the daal mixture also in 8 equal parts


Roll the ball into a chapati and pick one part of the daal mixture and place it in between the rolled chapati


Pull the ends of the chapati to the top and cover the daal mix completely.


Make a ball of the same


Roll the now stuffed balls into a chapati, like we do it in all stuffed parathas.


Put the rolled paratha on a hot tawa and cook on both sides till the paratha is cooked well


Now, pour a tsp of oil on both sides of the paratha and fry a bit. It will also give a shine to the paratha.


Serve your parathas hot with a bowl of yogurt or some mango pickle
