Masala Paratha

This unique Masala Paratha is made with leftover khichadi and a mix of flours. The rice and toovar dal in the khichadi combine with the flours to give the parathas a wonderful texture, while the spices in the khichadi give it a nice taste.

The dough is further tinged with asafoetida and chilli powder to make the flavour spicier. You must add some coriander to the dough as it instantly boosts the flavour and aroma.

The consistency of the dough might vary with the consistency of your khichadi, so feel free to add more flour if you find the dough too sticky too roll.

These parathas are very filling and ideal to have for breakfast . You can even pack them in the lunch box .
