Peas Paratha

One can always serve a stuffed paratha with pickle or any chutney. Hence it is a very good option for breakfast or snacks. Peas paratha (matar ka paratha) is one of the most easiest stuffed paratha.

Ingredients :

1. Boiled green peas- 1 1/2 cup
2. Roasted jeera (cumin)- 1 tsp
3. Chaat masala- 1 tbs
4. Salt to taste
5. Coriander powder- 1 tbs
6. Red chilly powder- 1/4 tsp
7. Hing (Asafoetida)- 1/2 tsp
8. Jeera powder- 1 tsp
9. Dry mango powder (aamchur)- 1/2 tsp
10. Mutton masala powder- 1/2 tsp
11. Flour (atta)- 1 1/2 cup
12. Oil

Procedure :

First heat 1 tsp of oil in a kadhai, add jeera and all the masala powders to it. Now mash the boiled peas properly and add it to the kadhai. Mix well and cook for 10 minutes until the mixture turns a little brown and sticks to the kadhai. Remove it from flame and cool it to room temperature.
Meanwhile make dough for paratha with flour, a little oil and water. Do not make the dough too soft as it will create a problem while rolling the paratha.
Now make medium balls from the dough and roll each into a 2 inch diameter roti and put little amount of the peas mixture. Cover the mixture from all side properly so that it does not come out while rolling. Now softly roll it to your desired size of paratha.
Heat 1 tsp oil in a flat surfaced frying pan and fry the paratha. Turn it after 6 to 8 minutes until it turns out brownish in color. You can also press it a little so that the paratha becomes a little crunchy.

Serve it hot with khatta meetha garlic chutney.
