For making the filling:-
Take the gram flour in a bowl and to it add the finely chopped onions, green chillies, cut ginger, garlic, salt, carom seed, vegetable oil and lemon juice and mix all up well.
Now roll out small rounds from the dough and in it fill the gram flour filling and seal it up using a little water. Now roll this small ball of dough filled with the filling using a rolling pin to make a medium-sized chapati.Take care not to crack the chapati or the filling will spill out of it.
Now take a griddle or tawa and heat it. Place the chapati in it and using some oil make out the paranthas. Take care not to burn them.
The paranthas of ‘sattu‘ or roasted gram flour are ready. Team them up with mashed brinjals, or curd dip or sweet or green chutney. It can be best had in breakfast or can suit you even at lunch or dinner.

Roast the brinjal on fire.
Take a small sized tomato, clean it and roast it too.
Now take the two veggies and mash it with a masher.
Heat a pan and add some oil to it. Then add a pinch of cumin. When it starts to splutter add finely cut onions and green chillies to it. Fry it a bit and then add the mashed mixture to it. Now add the remaining ingredients that are salt, garam masala and chopped coriander to it. Cook it for two minutes and remove from fire. The Baingan Bharta or Mashed Brinjals are thus ready.
