Moong dal – Methi Paratha

moong dal-methi paratha

Fenugreek or methi is supposed to have anti-diabetic effects on human body. According to wiki – ‘Several human intervention trials demonstrated that the antidiabetic effects of fenugreek seeds ameliorate most metabolic symptoms associated with type-1 and type-2 diabetes in both humans and relevant animal models by reducing serum glucose and improving glucose tolerance‘. I like to try new dishes with both methi seeds and leaves. I saw this recipe on a cooking show few days back. I am also trying to minimize the usage of rice in our diet. So these days we try to eat more chapatis and parathas. These parathas made a wholesome and tasty meal.

1/2 cup moong dal
1/2 cup chopped fenugreek(methi) leaves
1/2 tea spn pepper powder
1 tea spn cumin seeds
2 cups (approx, use what is needed to make a dough) wheat flour

Cook moong dal in pressure cooker with just enough water till it is soft.
Mix cooked dal, chopped methi leaves, cumin seeds, pepper powder and salt. Add enough wheat flour to make a soft dough. Knead it very well.
Take small balls of the dough and roll into parathas.
Roast them on both sides on a hot tava.
Serve hot.

Serves : 2-3
Preparation time : 30mins

    Lovely receipe. Tried it at once. came out very well. I fried methi leaves and added little bit of lemon juice for flavor.
