Green Peas Parata


Whole Wheat Flour - 2 cups

Salt to taste
Ghee/oil - 1 tsp for each each parata

For Stuffing:

Fresh Green Peas - 2 cups
Coriander Leaves, chopped - 1/2 cup
Green Chillies - 4
Dry Mango Powder - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste


  1. Take whole wheat flour, salt and water in a mixing. Mix them together and knead into a dough like that of chapati.
  2. Blend fresh green peas, green chillies and coriander leaves without adding water into a smooth paste.
  3. Add dry mango powder, cumin seeds and salt to the green peas paste. Mix well.
  4. Make small roundels of the green peas paste and keep aside.
  5. Make slightly smaller sized roundels of wheat flour dough and keep aside.
  6. Place one wheat flour roundel on a rolling board, dust it with some flour, roll it slightly with the rolling pin to make a small disc.
  7. Now place a green peas roundel in the centre of disc and bring the edges of the disc together and seal it carefully. Now dust is well with flour, and roll it evenly with a rolling pin.
  8. Place this on a preheated griddle, sprinkle some ghee/oil on top. Flip the side, sprinkle some ghee/oil on the other side. Roast both sides until small brown specks form on either sides.
  9. Serve hot with thick curd and pickle.
