To make Green Peas Paratha, take a sauce pan.
Add enough water into it to boil the green peas.
Once the water starts boiling, add ½ cup of green peas. They are a very good source of dietary fiber.
Add little salt. Adding salt at this step would stop enzyme actions which can cause loss of flavor, color and texture.
Boil the green peas until cooked.
Strain the green peas using a strainer.
Put the green peas in a bowl of ice-cold water. This is to preserve the green colour of the green peas.
Strain the green peas again. Discard the water or use it to make a soup.
Put the green peas into a blender and blend until it turns into a smooth paste. Keep aside.
Take a deep bowl and put ½ cup of wheat flour into it.
Then add the boiled green pea paste to it.
Add the green chillies. You can add chillies according to your preference of spiciness.
Add low fat curd. Curd would help in making the paratha softer and it also helps in binding the dough, as we are not using any water in the recipe.
Add carom seeds. Carom seeds aids in digestion.
Add salt to taste.
Mix all the ingredients and knead into a soft dough without using any water.
Divide the dough into 5 equal portions.
Roll out each portion into a 125 mm. (5") diameter circle with the help of a little wheat flour to make the Green Peas Paratha.
Cook each Green Peas Paratha on a non-stick tava (griddle) until both sides are golden brown in colour, using ½ tsp of peanut oil. Peanut oil has the highest amount of MUFA (around 49%) amongst all the other remaining common cooking oils. The remaining 51% is PUFA and SFA. Most households in western Indian use peanut oil as a cooking medium. If you want an option, then you can use another oil.
Serve the Green Peas Paratha hot with low fat curds.
High Fiber Green Peas Paratha for Diabetes. Green peas are a fair source of carbs, but their high fiber count and low glycemic index (22) makes them suitable for diabetes. Green peas are best combined with another fiber rich food so the overall glycemic count of the recipe is well maintained. So, here we have combined them with Whole wheat flour (and not low fiber maida) and put up in the form of a paratha on the table. With the addition of just a few basic spices from our masala dabba, these parathas are remarkably tasty when served off the tava. Serve them with protein rich low fat curds and not pickle. 1 to 1½ Green Pea Paratha is the suggested serving size for a diabetic.
