Stuffed Dal Paratha and Strawberry Kheer


Stuffed Dal paratha and strawberry kheer was our sunday breakfast. Dal Paratha is a traditional dish of northern India and is mostly prepared during the time of festivals. It is made like other parathas or can be deep fried too. Dal stuffed paratha is mainly famous as "Dal Puri" (even if it is not deep fried). It goes well with any type or curry, kheer, chatni or even with tomato ketchup.

For Dal Puri you need :




2 cup Bengal gram or chana dal.
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 Cumin seeds or jeera

2 Green Chili
1 Medium size onion (finely chopped)

1 Tbsp ginger garlic paste or finely chopped

1 Tspn Kitchen king masala or any sabji masala

Wheat flour 3 cups
Oil
Salt


Preparation:



Soak Chana dal overnight or 5-6 hours. Boil chana-daal in cooker with salt & turmeric with very little water till it gets soft. Mash it with masher or in a mixer(without water). Heat oil in kadhai and fry jeera, green chilli, cut onions, Kitchen king masala . Then add mashed dal & mix together. Make medium consistency dough with wheat flour. Use this dal filling in making parathas with the atta dough as we do for making stuffed aloo paratha.


For Strawberry Kheer you need:





1 litre milk
100 gm rice

200 gm Sugar

Elaichi powder
Dry coconut powder
Kaju
5-6 Strawberry


Method :

Clean & wash rice. Add sugar in milk and boil. Take 1 cup of boiled milk and keep aside for cooling. Add strawberry in the 1 cup of milk and grind in mixer finely. Add rice in the boiled milk and cook in a medium flame. Continue to boil till it reduced to half and rice gets properly cooked. Turn off the flame once the kheer is ready. After 10 - 15 mins, add strawberry milk and cook for 2 min on a light flame. Garnish with dry fruits & dry coconut gratings. Serve hot or cold as prefered. I like it cold.
