Mutter Paratha/ Stuffed Peas Bread

Stuffed Paranthas taste much better than the usual paranthas. You will definitely like the unique taste of Stuffed Green Pea(Matar) Parantha. These are very good for summer picnics- we are lucky to have frozen peas even in summers.

For dough:
Wheat flour -2 cups
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - add to taste (3/4 tsp)
Green peas -1 cup
Salt  to taste
Green chillies - 2
Ginger - 1/2 inch
Red chilly powder - 2tsp
Coriander (dhaniya) powder - 1 tsp
Coriander Leaves - 1 tbsp(finely chopped)

  1. Put flour in a bowl, put salt and oil then mix. Knead a soft dough using warm water.
  2. Cover the dough and keep aside for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Boil peas till they become a little soft, remove the water, grind peas into a coarse paste after they cool .
  4. Wash green chillies, break off their stems then finely chop them. Peel then grate ginger too.
  5. Add green chillies, ginger, red chilli powder, coriander powder and coriander leaves to the pea paste then mix properly.
  6. Place pan/tawa on gas and heat. Break off small lemon sized pieces from the dough, make them round. Put dry flour on 1 ball and roll it into a parantha(puri size), apply little oil to this puri, now put 1 1/2 tsp pea stuffing on it. Wrap up the parantha and close all open ends, place it between both palms and press gently to expand the parantha a bit.
  7. Coat with dry flour and roll it again into a parantha .
  8. Put rolled parantha on hot pan, apply oil on both sides, turn over time to time and cook till both sides turn brown.
Serve hot with raita chutneys or dips.
