Peas paratha

peas paratha As I said before, when my family was here, I had a great time. My granny used to cook a complete south Indian meal and my sister , north Indian delicacies . So I quite relaxed myself and enjoyed good food.
My sister made this parathas with green peas for lunch one day and they tasted great. A good healthy one , loved by children as well as grown ups, so thought of sharing it with you all.

Ingredients-
For stuffing-
Green peas- 1cup
Ginger garlic paste- 1tsp
Coriander powder- 1tsp
Garam masala-1tsp
Oil-1tsp
salt to taste

For the paratha
Wheat flour- 1cup
Besan/gram flour- 1tbsp
Salt-1tsp
oil- 1tsp

Ghee to brush on parathas.

Method-
For the stuffing-
Heat oil in pan. Add the ginger garlic paste and then the peas. Add the rest of the ingredients. Sprinkle little water. Close the lid till it cooks well. After sometime, try to mash the peas with a mechanical masher or blend it in a mixer.
Add the besan in wheat flour along with salt. Add water and make a smooth dough using little oil.

For assembling-
Make small balls on the dough. Roll a ball into a circle. Spread little stuffing on it. Roll another ball into a circle of same size. Place it on the stuffing. Seal both circles on the sides with little water.
Heat a tava. Place the paratha on it. Brush little oil on the upper surface. Turn on the other side and brush some more ghee.Cook well on both sides.peas paratha
Serve hot with any gravy or curds.

Yummy parathas. Using another paratha to seal the filling makes the job easier and less messy. Good one.
