Peas Paratha

For this month's PPCS I had to do Peas Paratha from Poornima's blog. I have done peas paratha before but had mixed the peas with the dough. This came out very good and this is going to be a regular in my Kitchen...

Thank you poornima :)


For the stuffing:
Green peas - 1 1/2 cup
Onion - 1 medium finely chopped
Green chilli - 2 finely choppedCarrom seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Pomegranate(Anardana) powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste

For the dough:
Whole wheat flour - 2 cups + for dusting
Salt to taste
Water as required
Ghee for greasing

Method:

Grind green peas to a coarse paste. Add all the ingredients mentioned for stuffing and mix well.
Add the ingredients for the dough and mix well to form a dough. Rest it for about 30 minutes.
Make big lemon sized balls from the dough and keep aside
Flat the dough a little and put the stuffing in it and close and seal the edges.
Dust some flour and roll out into chapati.
Heat a tawa and cook paratha until done on both sides with ghee
Remove from the tawa.
Serve hot with butter or curd.

Notes:

I used frozen peas instead of fresh peas. Cooked the peas in water and drained the water. Pureed the peas once they were at room temp.
I topped the curd with my spice mix (chillie powder + chaat masala + fried Jeera powder)
