Peas Paratha !




Stuffed flatbreads (Parathas) are always a yummy and filling recipe for either breakfast or dinner. 
It is little tricky and if you master the knack in rolling out parathas securing the filling then they are the easiest option for dinner. Green peas ground with fresh coriander and chillis and seasoned with spices is a delicious treat with curd or pickle.

INGREDIENTS (No Onion No Garlic) (Makes 6 - 7 paratas)

  • 2 cups Wheat Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Green Peas (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 2 Green Chillis
  • 1 piece Ginger
  • 2 - 3 tbsp chopped Coriander
  • salt as needed
  • a pinch of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Red chilli pwder
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Amchur / Anardana powder (or 1 tsp lime juice)
  • 1 tsp Jeera / Ajwain
  • Oil / Ghee for frying

STEPS

  • Boil the green peas in water with salt and little sugar for 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Then drain the water completely and place on a paper towel so that any extra moisture is also absorbed.
  • Knead wheat flour to a soft dough and make equal sized balls.


  • Once the peas is cooled, grind it coarsely with coriander , green chilli and ginger.


  • To the ground peas mixture add the spice powders and jeera/ajwain and mix well.
  • If its too watery and sticky add a spoon of flour and mix and make equal sized balls slightly lesser in size than the dough balls.
  • Roll out the dough into a small flat circle and place the peas mixture on it.


  • Weave the edges together and pinch of the extra on top.
  • Flatten the ball securing the filling and roll out carefully into a circle.


  • Place the rolled out paratha on a hot tawa and cook for a minute.
  • Flip it and brush some oil/ghee on it.


  • Flip again and brush some oil on the other side as well. If the paratha is rolled out perfectly then it will puff up nicely.
  • Flip and cook till the parata is cooked well and brown spots appear on the surface.
  • Repeat the same for all the balls.


NOTES
  • Use fresh or frozen peas. If using dry peas then soak oVernight and pressure cook it for 2 - 3 whistles, then cool and grind.
  • Instead of grinding, you can also mash it well but i prefer grinding so that when rolling it is easier and will not squeeze out.
  • Adding coriander gives a nice flavor and adds to the appealing green color.
  • Boiled and mashed potato can also be added to the peas mixture.
  • When serving brush with some butter and enjoy with pickle or curd. We had it with GREEN APPLE THOKKU



With Love,
