Daal paratha

Daal paratha

This recipe was shared in UAE food guide for a cook along event by Reshma Razack and nice of her to say yes when I asked if I can share the recipe on my page …. What I liked about this recipe was you can make kids eat dal with no fuss plus the parathas are super soft because of the daal that’s added to it , another thing was no stuffing was required which meant more easy to make and in my case I am a amateur when it comes in making Parathas and this recipe was sure a winner for me as it was super easy to me

Kids enjoyed the paratha and loved the soft texture of it … It was loaded with flavours and requires no side dish to go along with it … I served Paratha with chicken 65 masala which was also shared by Reshma …. Will post the recipe of it soon
