🥞Matar K Paratha, Tomato Saar and green tomato-peanuts chutney 🥞
Matar k paratha or green peas-stuffed flatbreads are a favourite during winter. The filling has peas, onion, ginger, green chillies, garlic, dry-mango powder and mango-ginger (I just can't cook anything savory without this).
I'd a whole batch of fresh green peas, peeled and ready so I thought why not make these flatbreads. This flatbread is enjoyed by my sister a lot and my mother too.
To complement the sweetness of peas I made this tomato Saar (thin watery, more flavorful version of tomato soup). What are Parathas without chutney so I'd this beautiful green tomato and peanuts chutney to relish by the side. So all in all a winter special lunch! Here's my recipe for the filling of Parathas. You can omit garlic and onions if you want, just put some fresh coriander and mint leaves. Serves10- 12 medium Parathas.
🥞3 cups peeled Green peas
🥞1 medium onion chopped
🥞3 tsp ginger-garlic-green chili paste
🥞1 tbsp oil
🥞1 tsp cumin powder
🥞1 tsp coriander powder
🥞1 tsp amchur or dry-mango powder (adjust according to your taste)
🥞5 cups water
🥞1 tsp red chili powder (optional)
🥞 Salt to taste
🥞Boil peas for 10 minutes add drain. Set aside to cool. Grind to medium fine texture.
🥞 Heat oil in a wok and add onions. Saute till translucent and add ginger-garlic paste. Saute till raw smell goes off.
🥞 Add ground peas, cumin powder, coriander powder, dry-mango powder, salt and stir everything. Keep stirring till the mixture comes together and dries. You should be able to form balls without lot of it sticking to your hands. Let it cool
🥞 Knead your dough and make parathas.
The earliest archaeological finds of peas date from the late neolithic era of current Greece, Syria, Turkey and Jordan. In Egypt, early finds date from c. 4800–4400 BC in the Nile delta area, and from c. 3800–3600 BC in Upper Egypt. The pea was also present in Georgia in the 5th millennium BC. Farther east, the finds are younger. Peas were present in Afghanistan c. 2000 BC, in Harappa, Pakistan, and in northwest India in 2250–1750 BC. In the second half of the 2nd millennium BC, this pulse crop appears in the Ganges Basin and southern India. Fresh peas are often eaten boiled and flavored with butter and/or spearmint as a side dish vegetable. Salt and pepper are also commonly added to peas when served. Fresh peas are also used in pot pies, salads and casseroles.

It was too gloomy for solar ☀️ cooking, but that didn't keep us hungry. Today was the day to prove that our little butane burner can also deliver healthy gourmet on the go.🚐
We decided on Exotic Eggs🥚, because we needed to use up our Canadian green peas, we stashed in the freezer some time ago.😟
Kroger parking lot looked conveniently situated. 10 minutes later we sat down for dinner.🍲
See the last photo for health benefits we got out of today's gourmet. That's the Exotic Eggs page from my 69 Pleasures 🍑 cookbook.
My granddaughter helped me with these emoji’s & didn’t she do a good job? This meal reminds me of A Shepherds Pie . The Real taste added here was fresh garlic sprinkled on top of potatoes & green peas .
Have you ever made Shepherds Pie? Did you like it? #emoji#shepherdspie#freshgarlic#potatoes#greenpeas
Trying my hardest to waste less food as one of my resolutions for the upcoming new year. So tonight for dinner I used up the remaining spaghetti squash I cooked late last week and made Spaghetti Squash Carbonara with Peas. I ate this version, but used regular spaghetti for my boyfriend to keep us both happy! Anyway, speaking of New Year’s Resolutions I like to start mine early to build up momentum before January hits. I’d love you hear what your New Year’s Resolutions are in the comments below if you have any! Happy Wednesday ❤️
