Peas-Peanut Paratha

Who does not enjoy a hot, buttery, full of beautiful stuffing paratha? I dont want to brag but my parathas are coming out super super well 😉 They are full of filling and are thin even with as much as 1.5-2 tbsp filling in a dough ball almost of a size of ping pong ball.

This one is an invention from my kitchen 😀 I love peas and peanuts equally. Well maybe peas a little more.

Anyway you shall need:


1/2 cup… Peas [I used frozen, in case you use fresh boil them for a couple of min/until they are nice and soft]

1/3 cup… Peanuts [I used raw ones]

1/4 tsp… cumin seeds

2 tbsp… Oil

1/2 tsp… Salt

1/2 tsp… Red chilly powder

1/4 tsp… Turmeric powder

1/2 tsp… dhaniya powder

1/4 tsp… Amchur powder

1/4 tsp… Cumin powder


Whole wheat flour dough [kneaded slightly tightly for the paratha]

To finish-

Ghee and butter


  • Heat oil in a pan, add cumin.
  • Add the peanuts and cook them on medium heat until nice and red/cooked.
  • Take them off the hear and keep aside.
  • In the same pan, add the peas and the spices [except dhaniya powder, cumin powder and amchur]
  • Add about 1/4 cup water.
  • Once water is almost over, add the peanuts and dhaniya, cumin powder and amchur.
  • Mix well and keep aside to cool.
  • Once it is cooled, put it all in a mixer and wizz it up a little bit.
  • The mixture must not be a paste, it must be coarse.
  • Make a ping pong size ball and add stuffing to it, like this.
  • Roll it out as this as possible without spilling the stuffing.

  • Put the flattened dough on the heated griddle.
  • Flip once one side is slightly cooked.
  • Add ghee to the flipped side and flip over again.
  • Add ghee to this side too.
  • Once it is cooked well from both sides, serve with a little butter on top along with curd and pickles.

Do try it and let me know how it works.
