Boil dal in plenty of water till soft but not broken.

Mix well into dal. Put mixture in a heavy saucepan and cook till a soft lump is formed Take care to stir continuously, so as not to charr. Keep aside. Mix ghee, flour, add enough water to make a soft pliable dough.Take a morsel sized ball of dough, roll into a 4″ round. Place same sized ball of filling in centre, life all round and seal.Reroll carefully to a 6″ diameter round.
Roast on warm griddle till golden brown.
Repeat other side.
Take on serving plate. Apply a tsp. of ghee all over top.

Shallow fry on griddle like a paratha for a better flavour. But this method will consume more ghee and therefore calories.

and some mashed dal.)
