green gram stuffed parathaI happened to try this dish yesterday. We had planned chappathi for dinner 2 days back, and later realised its ammavasyay. so had to refrigerate both the dough and the soaked green gram meant for dhal. turned out to be very tasty. no side dish was required since it was basically a dhal stuffing.
