Recipe Notes:

Using fresh peas in a green peas paratha will bring taste and flavor to your recipe more than frozen peas.

Here you would be thinking why am I using frozen while giving advice on fresh peas? I tell you the actual thing is that these peas that I used in the recipe were bought two days before as I went off the market so I bought and then peel them. so you can say it is fresh enough 😊 and if you haven’t any option then make it with frozen peas. this stuffed paratha tastes very good and am makes sure everyone would love it 

I used fine flour in a matar paratha to make it more crispy and delicious but you can skip fine flour and use wheat flour if you like and you have a digestion issue

I would recommend using ghee in matar paratha which will make too delicious paratha but here I used oil because am on a diet so avoid ghee and use olive oil. if you don’t have health issues use ghee in making matar ka paratha 

                                     

green peas paratha

To Make Puffy green peas paratha is to knead the dough medium soft and firm. if you knead the dough too soft matar paratha will tear and matar stuffing come out. and if you knead the dough too hard .it would be hard to roll out and will make hard paratha
