Sprouted Mung Aloo Paratha


( Click image for enlarged view )

Green gram / mung beans are among the best legumes for their supreme digestibility and health-giving qualities. I try to use it wherever I can, this paratha is filling and more nutritious. You can also use the filling for sandwiches.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups atta (Wheat flour)
  • 1/4 tsp ajwain (Caraway)
  • 1/2 tsp oil
  • pinch of salt

For Stuffing
  • 1.5 cup boiled mashed potato
  • 1 cup sprouted mung
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 chopped green chillis
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1/2 tbsp pav bhaji masala
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3 tbsp chopped cilantra
  • 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
Cooking Procedure

How to sprout mung:
Soak 1 cup whole mung with 3 cups water for overnight or 6-7 hrs n drain the water completely.Then cover the bowl or wrap in a wet cloth let it sit for another 7-8 hours. And your sprouts are ready.You can put this sprouts in ziplock n store in your fridge min 5 days and use according to your choice.


Making the dough for paratha
Take flour,mix salt and ajwain to it then add three-fourth cup of warm water gradually, knead to make a smooth dough. And keep aside for 15 min.


Stuffing for the paratha
Boil the sprouts in microwave for 2 min with a sprinkling of water.Heat oil in a pan, add onion, ginger garlic paste,green chillis,turmeric powder n stir till onion become translucent. Now add tomatoes and remaining powders n fry for a min. Now add mashed potatoes n sprouted mung dal nmix nicely n fry for 3 to 4 min.Then add chopped cilantro n mix it. And you stuffing is ready.

Making the paratha
Break the dough in 6 equal portions,roll each portion in a ball and flatten it by pressing.Place 1 1/2 table spoon of stuffing on it and enclose it.Seal the edges completely so that stuffing does not come out.Flatten again, sprinkle a little flour and roll them with a rolling pin to approximately six-inch diameter.

Heat a frying pan(tawa), place paratha on it and cook on moderate heat for three minutes.Turn it and pour half a tablespoon of oil, spread it on parantha and shallow fry over low heat.Turn it and again pour half a tablespoon of oil on other side, cook on low heat till golden brown.

Serve hot with fresh plain yogurt,pickle and onion tomato slices.

Thanks so much, Satya, for yet another great MLLA recipe! Love that touch of ajwain, which is a very different ingredient than the caraway seeds that Europeans cook and bake with (although they do look similar.) Yummy stuff!
