Bedmi Paratha , stuffed paratha from Uttar Pradesh

Bedmi Paratha is a delicious stuffed lentil parathas from UttarPradesh . Urad daal is ground coarsely and sautéed with spices , a filling is made and stuffed into this delicious paratha. Many people add this stuffing mixture to the flour and then bind , but I prefer the stuffed version . Initially  Bedmi Pooris  were popular but with so much health awareness , people prefer the parathas .These parathas taste best on their own too .I have a Bedmi Poori version too, which is one of the most famous Street Foods of Delhi.

I had made these Bedmi parathas long back when I posted a Thali from Uttar Pradesh . Here are some more recipes from this state.
