How to make Moong paratha:

Step1: In a wide bowl, add 1 cup of wheat flour, salt, oil, needed water and prepare a soft, smooth dough. Grease your hands with a tsp of oil and knead the dough well. Cover and keep it aside for 15-20 minutes. Prepare the dough just as you prepare for chapati.

Step2: In a blender/grinder combine moong and ginger and grind it into a course paste with the help of 2-3 teaspoon water (use minimum water).

Step3: For roasting add 2 teaspoon oil in a heated pan. Now add cumin seed and let them crackle then add hing,haldi powder and red chilly powder and saute for 10-20 secs.Then add Coriander powder and grounder moong paste and mix well.

Step4: Keep stirring and now add amchoor powder,cumin powder,garam masala,salt and mix well.Mix everything well and roast it for 3-4 mins till it becomes dry.Now add fresh coriander leaves and green chilly.Stuffing for paratha is ready and let it cool for 5 min before rolling it in paratha.

Step5: Divide the dough into 4 or 5 equal parts and make balls out of it.Divide the stuffing into 4 or 5 lemon sized balls.Dust a little flour and roll out the dough into a small circle.Keep a tbsp of stuffing in the center, gather all the corners and seal the dough with the stuffing inside. Press it down gently to flatten it.

Step6: Dust a little four and roll out the flattened dough with the stuffing into a 6-7″ circle. Do not apply too much pressure as the stuffing might come out.

Heat a non-stick tava (griddle) and cook the paratha until golden brown spots appear then flip it over to the other side.Spread a little oil/butter on the other side also and cook both sides well until golden brown.

Step7: Remove from tawa after both the sides are cooked well. Serve with coriander chutney,curd or pickles. Enjoy yummy and delicious protein rich moong parathas.
