Multi Grain Paratha with Spinach and Yellow Moong Dal ~ Diabetes Diet Food!

>>  Tuesday, July 20, 2010

This posted waited pretty long to get finally published! I was procrastinating every time I think this should be next. Well here I am finally with this wonderful paratha that Athamma made for herself. It is very healthy as the parathas are made with Multi grain flour.

The flour has Ragi, Wheat, Soya, Bajra etc. And with added effect of spinach and Yellow moong dal. This new Multi grain flour is our new discovery and I mostly make this for Athamma as she prefers this. Even when we grind the wheat flour at home, we add some soya, bajra to make it more fibrous and healthy.

Multi Grain Paratha with Spinach and yellow moong dal for a healthy and light dinner!

Ingredients Needed

Multi grain flour - 1 cup
Spinach - handful
Yellow Moong dal - 3 tsp
Salt to taste
Green Chilis - 1 medium
Oil for frying.

Method to prepare:

Wash and finely chop the spinach. soak the yellow moong dal for 10 - 15 mins.

In a bowl, take the flour along with salt. Squeeze out the water from spinach and yellow moong dal. Add to the flour. Mix well.

Slowly add enough water to made a soft dough. Divide into balls. Roll out as paratha and cook on a hot tawa on both sides.

That is a lovely looking paratha and wow, so healthy too. Again, I guess kind of one pot meal, as it has whole grains, veggie and lentils, everything in the same dish.
