Peas Paratha Recipe | Green Peas Recipes

Peas Paratha Recipe
I have tried peas paratha only once before this...I dont remember what I did it turned out very bland. So this time I made it more like rajma paratha and it turned out super good. I struggled a lot during the earlier stages when I started trying stuffed parathas like aloo paratha, gobi paratha etc but now knowig the knack of rolling it, making stuffed parathas is just a breeze anytime :)

Peas Paratha Recipe

My Notes:

  • Be careful while adding water to peas, dont make it mushy.
  • For the peas or any green vegetable to stay green, after pressure cooking release the pressure manually and open it. This way the veggies will stay green while adding in gravies - Got this tip from my cousin and it worked too.
  • Adjust the number of whistles depending on the variety of peas.
  • Keeping the inner stuffing ball little smaller helps in easier rolling.
  • Make thin or thick parathas as per your preference.We like ours a bit on the thinner side.

  18. Do you mean that even if we are using frozen mutter, we should pressure cook till one whistle, and remove pressure by puling the whistle after switching off the gas.

    1. For frozen peas you can even just boil in water for 3mins not specifically needed to be pressure cooked.
