Green Peas Paratha / Green Peas Flatbread

Frozen green peas - 1 lb
Green Chili - 2
Ginger - 1 inch, grated
Oil - 2 tsp
Hing / Asafoetida - a few pinches

Roasted ground cumin seeds - 2 tsp
Fennel Powder - 1 tsp

For the Paratha:
Whole wheat flour - 2 cups or an equal mix of APF and WWF
Oil - 3 tsp

Oil / Ghee for cooking the parathas

Blend the peas with green chili and ginger in a blender. Remove and keep aside.

In a pan heat oil. Add hing and the green peas paste. Then add cumin powder, fennel powder, salt and cook stirring constantly till the water dries up and the mixture changes color and becomes a little dryish. Check for seasoning and adjust it. Cool the mixture.

Mix the oil and salt with the flour well and knead into a soft dough using sufficient water.

Make balls of the dough, fill them with the peas mixture and roll them like paratha. Cook in a hot skillet with a little oil.
