Matar Kachaudi

My mom is from Kanpur and I have had a series of stuffed pooris/kachaudis from her kitchen. It was my time to experiment and make her proud. The usual peas kachaudi/poori that we see had pounded peas, but for my version, I used whole peas. Yes yes, dont get worried, in my opinion, it tasted much much better than the pounded one.
