Green Peas Paratha / Matar Ka Paratha

Green peas paratha is whole wheat flat bread stuffed with mashed and seasoned green peas. Delicious, healthy and filling  peas paratha is perfect to having for breakfast, lunch box or lunch along with some raita or any pickle. 

Today we are starting with another week of Blogging Marathon 86. My theme for the week is " Stuffed flat bread from different countries". For day 1, am here with a delicious and healthy flat break from India. Great way to feed kids who do not like green peas, like mine. Add some spices or seasoning according to your taste. Here goes the recipe.......


Frozen Green peas 1 cup
Ginger  1 inch root
Green chili 2
Fresh coriander 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Wheat flour 2 cups


Add little salt and 2 spoons  oil to wheat flour. Add water to make a nice chapati dough.
Set aside.
Presser cook green peas for 1- 2 whistles.
Drain water and grind it to course paste along with ginger, green chili and coriander.
Make medium size balls or the size of paratha you want to. 
Make same size balls with dough too.
Use dry wheat flour for dusting, make small chapati and place the peas balls in the center.
Seal the edges and make a ball again.

Now roll it carefully to make a round shaped paratha.
Heat a skillet and place this paratha on it to cook on both sides.
Add some ghee or oil on top.
Serve hot with raita or any pickle.
