Carrot Green Peas Paratha – Veg Flatbread2014-11-02
Carrot Green Peas Paratha – Veg Flatbread – Last week Sunday one of my friend visited us. Unfortunately, I forgot to purchase fresh vegetables on that Saturday. So, it was hectic for me, because Sunday no supermarkets are open. Fortunately, I had some Carrot and (frozen) Green Peas. Then, keeping the only option with carrots and peas, I thought to make some exclusively new Indian cuisine for my friend. I decided to give a try for some kind of Paratha using carrot and peas, which one of my North Indian friend told me some weeks ago. I surfed in the internet for some good recipe using carrot and peas but not found anything as I expected. Then, I prepared Carrot Peas (Gajar Mattar) Paratha in Indian way. The new recipe really turned very nice. My friend and my family were so happy with that delicious and awesome healthy Paratha. I hope you admire this recipe and I believe you will include this as regular recipe. Let me tell you the recipe. Moreover, this became now one of my recently favorite recipes. This is an exclusive recipe. What makes this recipe exclusive ?. Well, very simple, i did not do that in a normal way when stuffing the parathas, but to keep in simple and easy, i just mixed everything (Cooked Carrot, Peas together with Wheat Flour Atta) to make the dough and prepared just like Chapathi.
As usual I will try to keep the recipe preparation steps as simple as possible, so that it will be comfortable for beginners of Indian cooking. Step by step easy recipe to make an exclusively new Carrot Peas (Gajar Mattar) Paratha is given below. Try this new Paratha variety and drop us a word about your tasty experiences.

Carrot preparation: Wash the carrot and grate it and finely chopped. If you are using frozen green peas, then soak in hot water for some time and dry it. Now, carrot and peas are ready to make our new paratha recipe.
Tempering and Frying: Heat oil in a non-stick pan and add mustard seeds, when it sprinkles, add cumin seeds, curry leaves, urad dal, chana dal and fry it for few mins until all the ingredients turn to light brown color. Now, add chopped onions, ginger-garlic paste, green chilies and salt and salute until the raw flavor goes away. When nice aroma comes out, add chopped tomatoes and fry the whole mixture for few mins.
Masala Preparation: Now, add all the masala powders and again salute for a few more minutes. Now, add grated carrot and Peas and stir it for few mins. Sprinkle water and let it cook for 5 mins in a low flame. When all the ingredients gets cooked, turn off the heat and add some fresh Coriander leaves. Now, the carrot peas with masala ingredients are ready.
Dough Preparation: Transfer the carrot peas masala mixture in to a bowl and add whole wheat flour with a pinch of salt and mix altogether well. Vegetables (Carrot and Peas here) will leave some little water, so don't add much water to make the ground dough. Close the bowl and keep it aside for 5 mins.
Carrot Peas Paratha Dough: This is how the final dough looks like.
Dividing the dough to make parathas: Divide the dough in small sized balls.
Dough rolling: Roll the small sized dough balls in to 15 cm diameter circles (same like rolling chapathi). While rolling the Paratha sprinkle dry Atta flour, so that it doesn’t stick to chapati roller. Put little oil to the surface of both sides, so that it won't stick much.
Paratha Preparation: Place the rolled dough on a tava. When Paratha changes its color (with brown spots), apply little oil using kitchen paper or onion. Now, flip the Paratha upside down, when golden-brown spots appears both sides, apply little oil on both sides. Thats it.
Paratha Preparation: We are done with a very new variety of Indian Parathas. Now spicy gajar peas ka paratha ready! Try this new paratha recipe and do not forget to share your comments! 🙂
Tips:In order to preserve the softness of Paratha, Chapathi, Roti (whatever made with wheat flour) for long time, cover the whole food using aluminium foil.
