How to make Matar Paratha

  1. To make Matar Paratha take a sauce pan. 
  2. Add enough water into it to boil the green peas.
  3. Once the water starts boiling, add ½ cup of green peas. They are a very good source of dietary fiber. 
  4. Add little salt. Adding salt at this step would stop enzyme actions which can cause loss of flavor, color and texture.
  5. Boil the green peas until cooked and Strain the green peas using a strainer.
  6. Put the green peas in a bowl of ice-cold water. This is to preserve the green  colour of the green peas.
  7. Strain the green peas again. Discard the water or use it to make a soup.
  8. Put the green peas into a blender and blend until it turns into a smooth paste. Keep aside.
  9. Take a deep bowl and put ½ cup of wheat flour into it.
  10. Then add the boiled green pea paste to it.
  11. Add the green chillies. You can add chillies according to your preference of spiciness.
  12. 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.
  13. Add carom seeds. Carom seeds aids in digestion.
  14. Add salt to taste.
  15. Mix all the ingredients and knead into a soft dough without using any water.
  16. Divide the dough into 5 equal portions.

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 India use peanut oil as a cooking medium. If you want an option, then you can use ghee which is very healthy.
