Dal is cooked properly, let it cool at the room temperature.

Grind the cook dal to make a smooth mixture. Do not add water while grinding. The filling is ready.

In a bowl, add flour and water. Knead the flour well to make a smooth dough.

Divide the dough into 8 equal portions. Take one portion of the dough and dust with some flour, and roll it into a circle of 3-4 inches in diameter. Put 2 tbsp chana dal filling in the center of the circle. Close all the edges in the center. Dust with some more flour and roll it using a rolling pin in a circle of 7-8 inches in diameter.

The paratha is ready to cook.

Put it on the hot Tawa.

Flip it after 30 seconds. Spread oil and cook it on a medium to low flame till light golden spots appear on both the sides of the paratha.

The delicious chana dal paratha is ready to serve, Serve hot with your favourite sauce and curd.
