September 14, 2014

rajmaI got this recipe from a Punjabi lady during my college day.She would use any kind of leftover dal or beans to make paratha for breakfast the next day. What she would do is knead the dough with the curry and then make paratha’s out of it.


  • Wheat flour – 2 cups
  • Rajma curry – 1 cup
  • Onion – 1 (finely chopped)
  • Green chillies – 2
  • Coriander leaves – 2 tbsp (chopped)
  • Ajwain – 1/2 tsp
  • Kalonji – 1/2 tsp (optional)
  • Salt – as per taste


  • Mix all the above ingredients with the wheat flour.
  • Knead the dough by adding rajma curry little at a time.
  • You can use some water in the end if required to mix the dough fully.
