These days I am becoming more adventurous in my cooking. I was trying to make different types of parathas for dinner everyday and this was one of the successful experiments. I normally don’t buy mint here, as it is very strong compared to what we get in India. But this time I saw a pretty good bunch and bought it. We both liked these minty parathas which had a sweetish tinge due to peas.
2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup fresh/frozen peas
3 green chillies
2 tbl spns chopped pudina(mint)
Cook peas for few minutes (I cooked them just for 2 minutes as I used frozen ones).
Grind them with mint, green chillies and salt. Grind to a paste without adding too much water.
Add this paste to wheat flour. Make a dough. If required, add little water. Add 1/2 tea spn oil, knead again and keep side for about 20mins.
Take small balls from the dough and roll them into parathas.
Roast them on a hot tava. Apply ghee if required. Serve hot.
Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 30mins
