Today, I would like to put up  Dal  Parathas,  which turned out very tasty when I tried it out recently. 
Daal  Paratha  is a healthy Indian flat bread that is wholesome and nutritious. It is prepared  with spiced yellow lentil and wheat flour.  You can make this really spicy or keep them mild by adjusting the spices.  
It serves as a delicious, healthy breakfast snack along with yoghurt, pickle, spicy curry or chutney of your choice. 
So why don’t you give it a shot & enjoy..!
