Aloo-Peas Paratha

What you need

For the paratha:
2 cups wheat flour
Hot water - as reqd
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp

For the filling:
Potato - 2(boiled,peeled and mashed)
Peas - 1/2 a cup(I used frozen)
Onion - 1 small(chopped)
Jeera powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 3/4 tsp
Oil - a little

Kneading the dough:

Mix the wheat flour, salt and oil. Add hot water a little at a time to this and knead well until the dough is soft and pliable. Take care not to add too much water.
Keep covered for atleast 3-4 hours.

Making the masala:

Heat oil in a pan. Saute onions until brown. Add jeera powder, turmeric powder, garam masala and salt. Stir for a few seconds. Add the mashed potatoes and peas. Stir and remove from heat.

Making parathas:
  • Divide the dough into several small balls.

  • Roll the ball into a small circle.
  • Place a little bit of the masala in the centre of the circle.
  • Gather the sides and close into a ball again.
  • Flatten and roll into a thick paratha.
  • Transfer parathas to a heated pan.
  • When tiny bubbles form on the top flip the paratha over and cook the other side.
  • Brush some ghee on top of the paratha and serve hot with yogurt and pickle.
