Introduction: Stuffed Paratha With Green Peas - Potato Masala

Stuffed Paratha is a very famous North Indian food enjoyed by all. These parathas are made from all purpose wheat flour stuffed with spicy potato masala or any other vegetable. Here I have used fresh green peas along with potatoes for the stuffing.

A step-by-step instructable on making this North Indian comfort food at home.

Step 8: Cook Parathas

  • When the pan is hot enough add little amount of cooking oil over the pan

I too tried them at home and they turned out to be delicious. Here is an interesting idea - add a teeny bit of cheese too. It sounds weird but tastes quite yummy.

I would probably like this but had no idea what Asafoetida was so I looked it up. It is an interesting seasoning. Thanks for sharing.

thank you sunshine. Asafoetida is the dried gum of ferula plant. It adds flavor to the dishes. You can easily get it in any Asian shops.

Thanks for sharing. I will look for it in a spice shop when I go, or maybe I will look online. I really doubt they have it in my local grocery store. I will check though.
