Dal Parantha

Dal Parantha - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
I have used dal with its chhilka (skin) so that its fibrous content gets utilized. This is prepared using desi ghee and I have also added ingredients like ginger, garlic, ajwain, coriander etc. making it a complete meal giving it delicious taste and healthy content.
