Ingredients
  • 1 cup Channa masala / chole - (freshly made or leftovers)(see notes)
  • 2 cups Atta / whole wheat flour
  • to taste Salt
  • tbsp . oil-1/
  • 1/4 cup Ghee -(to brush on parathas)
  • Spices(optional)- according to your taste.(you can add red chilly powder,coriander powder, garam masala or kasuri methi or even sambar powder)
Instructions
  1. Pour the channa masala in a blender and grind it to a smooth paste.
  2. Combine the ground paste with the atta. Add more spices like garam masala or red chilly powder if needed to make the parathas more spicy.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Adding little water ,knead it to a smooth ,firm and non sticky dough.
  5. Add oil as you knead to make the dough smooth and non sticky . Make lemon shaped balls with the dough.
  6. Using a rolling pin, roll the ball into a thick circle.
  7. Spread some ghee on the circle.
  8. You can just fold it twice to form a triangle.
  9. Or like How I did when I got more adventurous and rolled the dough to make a pinwheel.(see picture above)(it is just to make layers in the parathas and it will also be flaky and crispy so that kids love that way.)
  10. Now again roll it to a thick circle.Heat a tava. When it is hot, place the circle on it. When it is slightly cooked in the bottom,flip and cook on the other side. Apply some ghee on both sides and cook on both sides till dark brown spots appear on them.
  11. Serve hot with spicy curds,pickle or raita or just like that.
  12. Notes-
  13. I have two recipes in this blog for channa masala.
  14. Refer here-
  15. Chole
  16. Channa masala.
  17. The channa masala you are mixing is already spicy, but if you want ,you can add more spices when mixing the dough.
