How to make Urad Dal Mix Paratha
Take urad dal (soaked for 2-3 hours) in a mixture grinder. Also add green chilly, chopped ginger and grind coarsely. Now take flour, coarsely ground dal, salt, fennel powder, cumin seeds, garam masala, red chilly powder, asafoetida, green coriander and 2 tsp oil in a bowl. Mix all ingredients really well. Now add little water at a time and knead a soft dough (you can also roast the dal and stuff the paranthas with it). For kneading this much flour we have used more than 1/2 cup of water. Cover and keep aside the dough for 15-20 minutes to set.
After 20 minutes, grease your hands with some oil and knead the dough again. Take little amount of dough and make a round dough ball. Dust the dough ball with dry flour and roll into 4-5 inch diameter round parantha. Now spread some oil on the rolled parantha evenly. Fold the parantha in half moon shape and spread some oil on this side as well. Fold again giving it a cone or triangular shape. Dust it with dry flour and roll thinly in triangular shape (don't keep it too thin).
Preheat tawa. Now spread some ghee on the tawa and place the parantha over it. When upper side of the parantha turns dark, flip the side. Once the parantha is roasted from beneath, evenly spread some oil on the upper side. Turn the side and spread some oil on this side as well. Now reduce the flame to minimum, press the parantha gently and roast until it gets brown spots. Take off the parantha from plate and place it over a bowl kept above a plate or on a plate with foil paper. Likewise prepare all paranthas.
Mouth watering and luscious bedmi paranthas are ready. Serve steaming hot paranthas with curd, chutney, pickle or any sabzi you like eating. Bedmi paranthas can be packed for kids in tiffin with sweet pickle or sweet sauce or chutney, they'll surely relish eating these.
