Leftover daal paratha

Delicious Parathas with leftover cooked lentil ( masoor dal ). Every time I cook daal ,I always have some leftover ( my family is non-veg lover ๐Ÿ™ƒ) and I am among those who just canโ€™t waste food. Itโ€™s a big No No for me. So I give my leftover daal a makeover at the breakfast table and thatโ€™s irresistible, drool worthy,all time fav. Parathas. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹
Here is my recipe of these delicious parathas.


Leftover daal: I had around 1 cup if you have more or less adjust the quantity of wheat flour accordingly.

Multigrain wheat flour: 1 1/2 cup

Onion: 1/2 of medium size ( finely chopped)

Ginger: 1/2 inch ( grated)

Green chili: 3 ( finely chopped)

Coriander leaves: handful of chopped leaves

Mint leaves: handful of chopped leaves

Chaat masala: 1 tsp

Amchur powder: 1 1/2 tsp

Ajwain ( carom seeds): 1 1/2 tsp

Oil for cooking parathas


  1. Mix all the ingredients together and knead into a dough to make Parathas. ( donโ€™t add water while kneading ), taste and adjust the salt and chili acc. to your preference.
  1. Take a small ball size portion and roll it with the help of rolling pin to make a chapati.

3. Heat a pan ( tawa) on medium flame and cook Parathas over it basting with ghee or your preferred cooking oil until it is cooked from both sides.

4. Serve with pickle/curd/ketchup/butter, it just tastes amazing in any way.

Notes: Add a medium size boiled potato (grated) if you are not in hurry, it gives an extra crunch and flavour. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜‹

Happy cooking โค๏ธ
