  • 2 cups Thick Dal
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 small Onion
  • 4-5 Green Chilies
  • 1 tsp Chaat Masala Powder
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • Salt To Taste


  • Dry off excess water in dal on medium heat while stirring constantly.
  • Add onion, green chilies, salt, chaat masala and lemon juice. Mix well.
  • Add wheat flour little by little till it forms a rough dough.
  • Add oil and knead for 1 minute to make smooth dough. Dough should not be sticky.
  • Divide dough into portion and form balls.
  • With help of wheat flour roll out dough balls into flat thick paratha.
  • Cook paratha on non stick tawa or fry pan with oil till you see golden brown spots. Serve hot with chutney.


  • The taste greatly depends on dal you are using so add more spices if daal is tasteless.
  • Add more wheat flour and oil if dough it still sticky.
  • Dry out as much water as you can from dal so you don't have to add a lot of wheat flour to make dough which will over shadow the taste and flavors of daal.
