Methi Dal Paratha

December 22, 2007 at 3:06 am 5 comments

I made these methi dal parathas the other day for my two year old daughter who likes to eat food that is easy for her to hold and non sticky.She usually prefers food like dosa,chapati etc and hates pastes.So,I came up with these attractive parathas for her.
I made methi dal.Took about three scoops of dal and added whole wheat flour just enough to make pliable dough for paratha,sprinkling water when needed. Rolled out parathas and used airplane,apple,butterfly and star shaped cookie cutters for these shapes . Heat tava and smear oil if desired , roast the parathas in batches on both sides for 2 Min’s each or till brown spots appear on both sides. I think this can be a great menu for kids lunch boxes.
