Peas Paratha/ Matar ka Paratha/ Peas Stuffed Paratha

March 11, 2014 Motions and Emotions 6 Comments

Peas Paratha is a healthy stuffed paratha. Green Peas are always my favourite, nowadays you get peas almost throughout the year either as fresh or frozen. However, I love the sweetness of the peas, that especially you get in the winter. In winter, mostly I prepare Peas Kachori, this time I tried Peas Paratha which is healthier than Kachori as it consumes less oil. You can make peas paratha anytime any season using either fresh peas or frozen once.
