I love this time of the year as we get varieties of fresh vegetables and fruits in the market.In this season, we get lot of fresh peas in the market, so I prepare lot of peas (matar) dishes and add peas even to simple stir fry. Green Peas paratha is a very delicious, healthy and filling breakfast. It can be served with pickles or curd.Today we will learn how to make peas paratha (matar ka paratha) following our easy stuffed peas paratha recipe.
How to prepare Peas Paratha
Makes 5 parathas
Whole wheat flour -1 cup (I used Aashirwad multigrain atta)
Fresh peas - 1/2 cup (you can use frozen also)
Onion - 1/2 cup (finely chopped)
Green chilli - 1 (finely chopped)
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Oil - 3 tsp
Salt as required
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Jeera/cumin seeds powder - 1/2 tsp
Kitchen king masala or garam masala - 1 tsp
Oil for frying parathas
Cook peas in little water, adding salt till soft. Drain the water and grind it to a coarse paste. Keep it aside.
Combine wheat flour, a pinch of salt, 1 tsp of oil, mix well and knead it into a soft dough using warm water just as you prepare for chapati. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Meantime we will prepare the stuffing for the paratha
Heat 2 tsp of oil, add jeera seeds, when it splutters, add onion and saute nicely till it turns golden brown.
Add ginger garlic paste and saute for a few more minutes.
Add all the spice powder and needed salt. (we have already added salt to peas, so add less now)
Add the grounded peas paste and saute till all the water evaporates. Keep it aside.
Now both the dough and the peas stuffing is ready.
Take a lemon sized ball from the dough, flatten it and roll it out into a small circle, keep a tbsp of stuffing, gather all the sides and seal it completely.
Then roll it out again with the stuffing (with sealed part on the top) dusting wheat flour. (2nd picture above)
Heat a griddle or tawa, put the rolled out parathas on it, when bubbles appear on the surface, apply a tsp of oil and flip it over to the other side.
Cook both sides well till golden specs appear and serve hot with chutney or pickle or curd.
