Rajma Paratha (Kidney bean)

Kidney Beans are rich in soluble fibre, so these are good in controlling cholesterol .They are a good source of protein, folate, iron, manganese and zinc. Kidney bean is also a good source of iron and potassium, thiamin, riboflavin, phosphorus and copper. The bad thing about kidney beans is that they are high in saturated fat and sodium. Serve these all-in-one Parathas to your loved one for lunch or dinner, and be ensured of their calcium, caloric, protein and iron intake.

2 cups cooked and mashed rajma (kidney beans) 
2 cups wheat flour 
1 onion, 2 green chillies, 1/2cup coriander leaves, finely chopped 
1/2 tsp turmeric powder 
1/2 tsp red chilli powder 
1/2 tsp garam masala powder 
Oil/Ghee as required 
Salt to taste.

Cooking Method.
Make a soft dough of flour, salt and water and keep covered for 1/2 hour. 
Heat 1 tsp oil, add onion, green chillies, turmeric powder and mashed rajma 
After 2minutes, add salt, red chilli powder and garam masala powder and mix well and cook for another 2 to 3minutes.
Cool and add coriander leaves. Make small balls of it. 
Make balls of the flour dough. Roll a ball into a thick poori, place the stuffing in the center.
Now cover well with the dough from the corners. Dust with flour and roll into thick parathas.
Cook on hot tava with oil/ghee as required.
