Chana sabji paratha is nutritious and healthy too. You can make chana ka parantha with grinded chana dal as well but that is called as sattu ka paratha which is quite famous in Banaras. I came up with recipe keeping in mind the sattu ka paratha only. These paratha can be served in their own way as they make a quite a filling snack. You can make these paratha in two ways either by rolling out lightly the stuffing so that it doesnâ€™t come out and another method which I always follow is to put the stuffing in between two large thin chapattis and seal the edges of the chapattis and then cook the paratha. This paratha can be served with curd , achaar or tomato chatni as well.
1 cup left over cooked chana.(This chana sabji was made by adding onion and tomato with all usual masalas)
Oil for cooking
1 cup Wheat flour(gehu ka aata)
Salt(Acc to taste)
Red chilli powder(Acc to taste)
1 tsp oil for dough
Water to make dough
Step 1: Add salt,1tsp oil and red chili powder in wheat flour.
Step2: Knead into a dough using enough water.
Step5: Place one portion of the filling mixture in the center of the circle.
Step6: Bring together all the sides in the center and seal tightly.
Step7: Roll out again into a circle.
Step8: Cook on a hot tava (griddle), using a little oil, until both sides are golden brown.
You can make 4-5 parathas with above ingredients.
This paratha won’t be as tasty as your aalo ka paratha but it will have more nutrients then any other paratha which you have .Ideal for kids lunch and breakfast.
