2cupsWhole wheat flour (Chapati atta)+ more for dusting
Salt to taste
2tablespoonOil+ more for making paratha
¾ cup + 2tablespoonsWater
First boil the green peas. Here I have used frozen peas and cooked in microwave for 4-5 minutes. If using fresh peas, it will take little longer in microwave. Instead you can boil in pressure cooker or steam them.
Drain the peas very well. We do not need any water left in matar.
Take drained green peas in a food processor. Roughly crush them. Do not make smooth paste.
Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat. Once hot add chopped onion and salt.
Cook till onions get soft and turns translucent or light brown in color.
Now add green chili, ginger paste and garlic paste. Saute for a minute.
Now add crushed peas. Mix well.
Add red chili powder, coriander powder and garam masala. Mix well and cook it with stirring occasionally.
Cook till almost all the moisture evaporates. It took me about 6-7 minutes.
Remove it to a plate and let it cool to room temperature. While it is cooling make the dough.
Making the dough:
Take atta and salt in a bowl. Mix.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil. Mix it by rubbing between your fingers.
Now add little water at a time and knead into a dough.
Dough should be smooth and soft just like plain paratha dough.
Cover it and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
Making peas paratha recipe:
After the resting time, knead the dough once again to make it smooth.
Divide it into 10 equal portions. make smooth balls and flatten them between your palm one by one.
Now work with once flattened disc at a time. Dip both sides into dry flour.
Roll into 4 inch diameter circle using rolling pin and rolling board.
Put stuffing in the center. Gather the edges in the center. Pinch it to seal it tightly.
Now gently press it using your fingers and make around 3 inch diameter disc.
now again dip both sides into dry flour and gently roll into about 6 inch diameter circle.
Heat the tawa on medium heat. Once hot, place rolled paratha on it.
Fry both sides using little oil till both sides have golden brown spots.
Remove it from the tawa and place in insulated container
