Dal Paratha | Leftover Dal Paratha | Lentil Flatbread with step-by-step instructions.

This paratha is kids special recipe. Why I have tagged this as kids special? Because many kids don’t like dal (like my son). This is an healthier alternative you can make for your kid.

This is a comfort food and an easier tiffin box recipe for your kid. If you are making this for morning tiffin box then my suggestion (what i also do) prepare dal from night and refrigerate. This will save whole lot of time in busy morning hours.
