Channa Dal And Garlic Paratha... This paratha is very close to my heart, not because this is garlic mixed paratha but there is a very big story behind this. I don't think so i have so much of patience to sit and Wright everything. I don't know some how after coming to UK i don't have enough ideas what to cook in breakfast. I will be keep eating my hubby's head to tell me what to cook in tomorrow's breakfast and he only replies. You don't take so much of tension I will just eating cornflakes or bread and butter or bread and omelette. Even I feel it is good for him only as he has to leave home at 6:45am. So even I stop my self by experimenting.... But on weekends i try a lots of recipes and never feel like taking pictures and posting, because as soon as the food is cooked I start feeling hungry...
It had been a long time I had cooked this paratha and there was a soaked channa dal already in my fridge. That was the main reason to cook this paratha for yesterday's breakfast...
