Peas-paratha-recipe

Stuffed parathas are easy to make, but only if you know the knack of rolling. If you learn that, then you can make it easy for lunch box for kids and even easy for dinner meals. They are healthy,not to mention. I weekly make Aloo paratha for Aj’s(my kiddo) lunch box. The other parathas except cabbage paratha make rare appearance in my kitchen. I am trying peas paratha for first time and found it damn easy and tasty too. Aj too loved it and I have packed it for his lunch box today. He likes all the eating stuffs that’s green in colour. He thinks green means healthy and never says no.

Peas Paratha recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 15 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients


Frozen peas  1 & 1/2 cups 
Green chilli  3 
Ginger  2 inch pieces 
Garam masala powder  3/4 tsp 
Turmeric powder  1/8 tsp 
Ajwain/jeera  1 tsp 
Chopped coriander leaves  2 tblsp 
Lemon juice(optional)  1 tsp 
Salt  as needed 

For dough

Wheat flour 1 & 1/4 cup
Oil 2 tblsp
Salt & water as needed

Method

  1. First make the dough and let it rest for 1/2 hour,mix  flour with salt and oil and add warm water to make a soft and smooth dough.
  2. pp-horz
  3. Pressure cook peas with a pinch of sugar mixed,don’t add water. Cool down.
  4. pp1
  5. Grind green chilli and ginger first roughly and then add the green peas and grind coarsely.
  6. pp2
  7. Mix salt,garam masala,turmeric,ajwain,coriander leaves and lemon(if desired) with the peas and make equal sized balls out of both dough and peas stuffing.
  8. pp4
  9. Roll thick circle and keep the stuffing inside and cover the stuffing and make a ball. Roll it out with generous dusting with flour and make out thick parathas.
  10. pp5
  11. Cook on both sides until golden spots appear,with oil/ghee drizzled over.
  12. pp6

Notes

  • Pressure cooking without water means, place the peas in a container and keep it inside the cooker and give two whistles. You can take it as 'Steaming'. The idea is to keep the peas dry. 
  • Always make sure the stuffing and dough to be of same consistency. Otherwise there will be difficulty in rolling out.
  • Making dough with oil and warm water will ensure soft paratha.
  • Making dough and stuffing both in equal size balls gives good balance of them and tastes great.

Serve with the comforting curd and pickle or any vegetable or boondi raita as side dish .

    I have bookmarked your cabbage paratha because my daughter cannot have too much of peas and legumes.
    This is a great way to keep kids healthy. Thanks!

  39. I always thought that grinding the peas would make it get a floury texture.. but it doesn't look that way at all. Looks great. I'll try and hope my little ones like it too - it's not always easy to please them.

  54. hi....
    I tried many paratha varieties. But always I used to find difficulties in rolling. Your tip "stuffing and dough should be of same consistency"
    helped me. This time it was soo easy to roll. Thank you very much.

  60. very nice recipe,,, but still i have a doubt. the thing is reg.peas.. which peas should be used?? the one readily available in stores wich is hard or the odr one we get from garden in wich we ll remove it frm a pea blanket?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can use both. If you are using the dried peas (hard), soak overnight, drain water and pressure cook with little water, make sure u drain water well before you proceed with the recipe. If you are using garden peas, you can follow the same above method.

  61. Hi, While using frozen peas, should we have to let them come to the room temp? I think my stuffing became a little bit watery as I did not allow it to come down to normal. I saved my day by adding some wheat flour to the stuffing. Even though the shape wasn't good, the taste was yummy!.. My kid liked it very much..

  64. Hi Raji Akka,

    I just tried my first stuffed paratha... And it came out well in taste. As i was having only poori press, the shape of peas paratha was not upto the mark :) Still my kid loved it.

    thanks for the recipe :)
    I have just started writing a blog to archive my trials :) i have posted it in my blog too :)
