Vegetable Dal Roll
It is school reopening time and most mothers are busy wondering which new nutritious snack would be a good choice to add to their lunch box menu. To get children to eat all veggies and healthy food is a huge challenge. One way is to get all the nutrition into a roll with some yummy sauce/chutney. Let us try this one which has 3 types of dals and loads of veggies.
- 1/2 cup Toor Dal
- 1/2 cup Moong Dal
- 2 tsps Chana Dal
- 1/2 cup Cauliflower florets
- 1/2 cup capsicum finely chopped
- 1/2 cup carrots finely chopped
- 1/4 cup tomatoes finely chopped
- 1/2 cup onions finely chopped
- few pitted olives
- 1 tbsp Sunflower oil
- Italian Seasoning (Basil,Oregano,Chilli flakes)
- Grated cheese
- Salt to taste
- Wheat Flour for the rotis
Boil the dals together with enough water to cook them. Once cooked, drain the extra water and keep it aside. Make a dough out of the wheat flour, knead it well and let it sit for 15 mins. Meanwhile we can prepare the filling. Boil carrots and cauliflower separately. Saute all the other vegetables in sunflower oil. Once they are cooked, add the cooked dal, carrots and cauliflower and mix. Add the seasoning along with required salt and let the vegetables cook till the filling is thick. Now our filling is ready.
Roll the dough into lemon sized balls and make rotis out of them. Take each roti, place the filling along the centre, add grated cheese on top and roll the sides onto each other to close the roll. You can use a little water to close the roll so that it does not open. You can cut the roll into three pieces, so it is easier to eat.
You can pack this as lunch for your kids along with their favourite sauce!
