Peas Paratha Recipe-Green Peas Recipes

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 is served with pickles or curd. Today we will learn how to make peas paratha (matar ka paratha) following our easy stuffed peas paratha recipe with step wise pictures.

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 adding warm water just as you prepare for chapati.  Let it sit for 15-20 minutes.

Meantime we will prepare the stuffing for the peas paratha.

Stuffing preparation

Heat 3 tsp of oil, add jeera seeds, when it sizzles, add finely chopped onions, green chillies and saute 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 ground peas paste and saute till all the water evaporates. Keep it aside.

Now both the paratha dough and the peas stuffing are kept ready.

Divide the dough into equal pieces and make smooth balls. Take a ball, flatten it and roll it out into a medium circle dusting wheat flour.

Keep 1-2 tbsp of stuffing in the center, gather all the sides and seal it completely as shown in the picture below.

Then roll it out again with the stuffing (with sealed part on the top) dusting wheat flour.
