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]
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.
