Dal Paratha recipe - easy indian breads

dal paratha I had no hopes of making something for the SWC- Gujarat event, due to a very busy schedule this month, But at the end I managed it. I was browsing the net for some Gujarati recipes and found this Daal parathas extremely tempting. So tried making them and they tasted absolutely delicious.
These parathas goes to Priyanka of Asankhana who is hosting SWC-Gujarat this month. This event was started by LG Of Taste of mysore for Singapore women's club.
I am also sending this tasty parathas to Srivalli who is hosting roti mela. I had something else in mind for the event. Anyway, if that works out , I will post it later.

Here is the recipe for the parathas taken from here.
Ingredients-
For the dough
Wheat flour- 1 cup
Salt- to taste
Oil- 1tbsp

For the filling
Yellow moong daal-1/2 cup
Jeera- 1/2 tsp
Red chilly powder- 1tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida- a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil- 1tbsp

Method-
Soak mung daal for sometime and pressure cook till it gets little soft , but not very mushy.
Then, put some oil in a pan. Add jeera and hing. Then add the cooked dal followed by turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt.Cook for sometime till it gets a little dry sort of.
Make dough with wheat flour and salt. Roll it into a small circle and keep the stuffing in the centre. Seal it and roll them into normal parathas. Heat a tava and cook the paratha on both sides. Serve hot with any curry or raitha.

Dhal Parathas look awesome.. i've only had paraths where leftover dhal was kneaded with the dough... this stuffing looks like a neat idea.
