I don’t know if this is a common occurrence or not but it sure happens a lot in my house. Left over dal and lots of it. My family wants a different dal every time and invariably i will have small quantities of left over dal in the fridge. So in a week I will accumulate at least four types of dal in small quantities. The best way to use up these are to use them in parantha. It can be any kind and combination of dal.

Ingredients Serving: 5

  1. For the filling
  2. About 2 cups of cooked left over dal
  3. 1 tsp cumin seeds
  4. 2 tbsp chopped green coriander
  5. For the Dough
  6. 2 cups atta
  7. 1 tsp oil
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Water to knead


  1. Heat some oil. Add the cumin seeds. Then add the cooked dal. Cook on high flame till the dal dries up totally.
  2. Since this is already cooked dal you don’t have to add any salt or masalas. Add chopped green coriander.
  3. Add the salt to the atta. Add the oil and rub it in. Make a tight dough.
  4. Now make small ball of the dough. The size of the paratha is upon your preference. Roll out each ball a little. Place a tablespoon of filling inside, seal and then roll it out again. Cook on the tava.
