Peas & Mint Paratha

Peas and mint paratha1

I enjoyed posting chaat items for more than a week and now I'm back to blog other yummylicious dishes :)

We have been having India bread varieties like Chapathi/Paratha in our dinner menu for almost three years now and variety has become inevitable to omit boredom.

My vote(quite influenced by the word today :P) goes for paratha since I don't have to think of any subzi accompaniments and they just go awesome with plain curd or raitha :P that shows the lazy me isn't it!!

Peas and mint paratha3

Ingredients:

Peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1
Green chillies - 3
Wheat flour - 2 cups
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Hing(asafoetida/perungayam) - 1/4 tsp
Salt - for taste
Mint leaves - 1/2 bunch

Peas and mint paratha

Method:

Cook peas and roughly chop the onion.

Clean, wash and chop the mint leaves finely and keep it aside.

Grind the peas along with onion and green chillies into a smooth paste by adding little water.

Take the ground paste in a bowl and add wheat flour, salt, garam masala and chopped mint leaves to it and make a dough by adding water little by little to it. The consistency should be that of chapathi dough.

Keep it closed for half an hour before use.

Peas and mint paratha2

Pinch lemon sized balls of dough and roll it into parathas on a well floured surface.

Now roast them on a tawa by adding few drops of oil.

Yummy peas and mint paratha is ready :)

Serve it with raitha of your choice.

Enjoy making :)

Tips:

You can also make the chapathi dough and filling separately and make parathas just like aloo paratha.

You grind the mint leaves along with peas and make dough as well.

I have always made the stuffed version, and i have always fried the onions before grinding it with the cooked peas. This is new to me..and i used to wonder if it will be nice to grind the raw onion and the cooked peas..will try it soon.

Love the pictures and the refreshing colour of the drink.

Now I seriously miss home! I'm reminded of my grandmother who'd stuff parathas with mint and mashed peas.
The only ones that you get here in the supermarkets are garlic naans, frozen....and soggy.
