How to make dal paratha | Kids lunch box ideas

Dal / lentil parathas are very  healthy breakfast and many people prefer to start their day by eating this wholesome and protein full parathas with curd. Any dal /lentil from toor / chana / moong dal can be used for making  these parathas. I like this parathas as they are perfect for kids lunch boxes. Its easy for kids to eat this paratha at lunch time in schools.Kids take time to eat Chapathi/ roti with curry in lunch box.Dal paratha is easy to eat as it has lentils mixed in it while making.Just apply sweet pickle /choice of sauce and make rolls of it to pack in tifin.
