To make Rajasthani moong dal paratha, start by washing the moong dal nicely, and then soak it in water for a few hours.
Once done, strain excess water from it and transfer it to a bowl along with flour, red chilli powder, fennel seeds, nigella seeds, haldi, hing, and coriander leaves.
Now gradually add water to combine everything together and form a smooth dough. Cover the dough with a wet cloth and let it rest for about 30 minutes.
Brush some ghee over it and knead again. Divide the dough into equal-sized portions and flatten them out using a rolling pin.
Heat a tawa set on a low-medium flame and place the paratha over it. Allow it to cook on one side, and then flip and cook on the other. Brush with ghee and serve hot.
