Today, I would like to put up Dal Parathas, which turned out very tasty when I tried it out recently. Daal Paratha is a healthy Indian flat bread that is wholesome and nutritious. It is prepared with spiced yellow lentil and wheat flour. You can make this really spicy or keep them mild by adjusting the spices. It serves as a delicious, healthy breakfast snack along with yoghurt, pickle, spicy curry or chutney of your choice. So why don’t you give it a shot & enjoy..!
