  • 1 cup Leftover Dal cooked
  • 2 cup fresh Methi leaves /fenugreek leaves you can use 1 cup frozen
  • 2 cup whole wheat flour
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon red chili powder
  • 3 Chopped green Chillies optional
  • 1 tablespoon Cilantro Coriander leaves
  • 2 tablespoon Ghee/oil to cook Paratha


  • For making dough for Dal paratha, Mix all the ingredients except ghee in a big mixing bowl and make a stiff dough.
  • The important thing to take care while making dough since dal is liquid, first mix all the ingredients well and then add water as required.
  • You can also mix the ingredients and make the dough in a food processor.
  • Prepare the dough and rest it for 20-30 minutes.
  • Now divide the dough into 6-8 equal portions and roll them. Use dry wheat flour as required.
  • To shape the paratha follow the pictorial of paratha folding steps which I have given below.
  • After rolling the paratha, Heat a griddle, and place the paratha on the preheated griddle/tava.
  • When it is cooked from one side, apply melted ghee/butter/oil on the other side and flip it with a spatula once again.
  • Cook the second side till brown spots start to appear.
  • Check another side once again and if it is cooked just take it out of the tava onto a plate, otherwise cook it some more.
  • Top these missa paratha with some butter and serve with any pickle or plain yogurt.
