Orange and green, sweet and nutty, crunchy and coarse... the characteristics of carrots and green peas are a perfectly complementary contrast to each other! When this successful duo comes together with peppy ingredients like chaat masala and lime juice, it makes an absolutely flavourful stuffing for sumptuous whole wheat parathas! Enjoy the Green Pea and Carrot Paratha right off the tava with a bowl of curds and your favourite pickle.
