First, make stuffing for Paratha
Heat up a pan, add 1 tsp oil
Add 1 tsp Cumin seeds (Jeera)
Add 1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
Add 1/2 finely chopped onion
Add salt, it will help cook onion faster
While onion gets cooked, keep 200 gm raw matar ready coarsely grinded
In the pan now add finely chopped green chillies
Add 1/2 tsp garam masala
Add little Dry pomegranate seeds powder to bring the sourness, alternatively, you may use lemon too.
Now add the coarsely grind matar into the pan
Now add chopped coriander leaves
Add a pinch of sugar to balance the flavours.
mix till you get half cooked stuffing mixed, don't overcook it as it will get cooked with paratha as well
Turn off the flame and let it come to room temperature
Add some finely chopped mint leaves (Pudina)
#Tip: Never add Pudina (mint leaves) when stuffing is hot, as the leaves will get black and won't stay green.
Make Roti atta (made from wheat)
Make large balls of roti atta
Roll it in dry atta and with roller pin make a thick round
Make sure borders of Paratha is thin so that you can fold stuffing inside and borders can stick
Fill the matar stuffing in the center
Close the edges and make a bag.
Flatten it a little apply dry atta again on both sides so that when you roll the atta it doesn't get stick to the edges
Meanwhile heat up a flat pan
Roll the atta slightly thick, too thin will cause the stuffing to ooze out.
Don't give too much pressure, roll with light hands
Use hands to flatten a little and place it on the warmed up flat pan
Let it get cooked from both sides a little
Apply some ghee on both sides of paratha while cooking
Once paratha gets golden brown from both sides, it means it's ready for serving
Serve paratha with Raita or Curd of your choice, butter, chutney, pickle or any other condiments of your liking
Enjoy Winter season with this scrumptious hare matar ka paratha.
