ndian Flatbreads or Paranthas are famous all over the globe for the variety of stuffing. They can be vegetarian as well as non vegetarian. Basically there is no end to them, you just have to be creative with it.

My husband and kiddo are not very fond of Peas or matar. They eat it when only when pressurized or when I have to raise my eyebrow 😛 So making them eat this parantha was a challenge. I borrowed this recipe from an adorable friend whom I met in Mexico, Garima Kedia Harlalka. From the moment she shared this recipe I knew I had to make this. But unfortunately it took me soo much time as I was bust relocating to India,

I tried it and it came out soo well that both my fussy boys relished it to the core. Thank you soo much Garima this is for you.

Directions:

1. Take peas, I am using frozen, but you can use fresh if you like.

2. Defrost them in the Microwave for about 3-4 minutes. Time can vary on the power of your microwave. You can even put them in hot water to defrost without microwave. Later you can drain them.

12. Roll it carefully in a circle using a roller pin and dry flour. Ensure you don’t put a lot of pressure while rolling as the stuffing can ooze out.
