Missa Paratha is one our favorite Punjabi Recipes. Why? Because it takes less than 30 minutes to make these Parathas. I mean that literally this a real simple, time saving and easy to remember Missa Paratha Recipe. I, as a cook, turn to this recipe for a quick weekday breakfast, hastily packed lunch box meal or a fulfilling dinner. With Missa Paratha dough sitting in the fridge, you can make the Paratha during any given hour of the day.
A tried and tested recipe to provide a family meal that keeps everyone happy without batting an eyelash. Some of the best restaurants in Delhi serve Missa Paratha in their menu. But then how this one is different? We use leftover cooked yellow dal to make the dough for Missa Paratha. Just any yellow dal is good for the recipe.
Sometimes you need to follow such cheat tricks, one to save time, and second to use previous day leftovers in an efficient manner. To give this recipe a flavour boost, we add plenty of fresh coriander, kasoori methi, chopped onion, and spices. Good news: This Missa Paratha is as good as the one served in few of the amazing restaurants in Delhi. Serve them with a big dollop of homemade butter, sweet mango chutney and a tall glass of lassi. With this combination, you feel so satiated for rest of the day. So the beauty of these Missa Parathas is you can cook them directly over the heat or in tandoor. But then they have to be served immediately, crisp, smeared with butter. Or if you don’t mind few extra calories, cook them in the hot skillet greased with oil.
