Winters are the best time to indulge in stuffed parathas and it is quite evident from my recent posts of Mooli Paratha and Palak Hara Lahsun Parathas that our breakfasts are a sheer delight these days. We are making the most of the whatever that’s left of the Mumbai Winters by enjoying piping hot parathas for breakfast. So, today I am back with another Paratha recipe – Aloo Matar Paratha, Potato Peas Stuffed Flatbreads.

Matar or Fresh peas are in season and I have been adding it to everything from sabzis to soups and pulao etc and simply cannot ever get enough of the sweet green pearls.

Aloo Parathas are generally a crowd favourite and adding peas to them during winters only lets you make the most of the seasonal produce. Peas are generally loved by kids so I am sure the combination of potato and peas would be a huge hit for your next breakfast.

Planning Aloo Matar Parathas for breakfast is not at all difficult if you prep the previous day, like I do. I usually knead the dough and store in the fridge. Boil the potatoes and lightly steam the green peas to retain that lovely green colour.

I prepare the Aloo Matar paratha stuffing mixture, store it in an airtight box in the refrigerator and in the morning just roll out the parathas easily after returning back from my morning walk.

I usually prep most of my meals a day in advance as my husband’s schedules are very erratic and I prefer him carrying meals from home strictly. With prep work done or mis en place (the culinary term) done the previous night, I am at peace the next morning as breakfast and lunch happens simultaneously and in 45 mins flat.

5. Heat a griddle or non stick tawa / pan and cook them on both sides by pouring ghee and/or oil on the sides.

6. Serve hot with accompaniments of your choice.

Recipe Notes

  • I made 5 medium parathas with this measurement. 1 cup is 250 ml.
  • As you can see from the pictures, I have not completely mashed the green peas as we like to keep it that way.
  • Ensure the dough is medium soft so that it can hold the moisture of the peas and not tear the parathas while rolling them out.
  • Steam the peas instead of boiling them especially in winter when they are fresh. It takes about 10 minutes for it to soften up and doesn’t lose it’s colour too.
  • I cook Parathas only with ghee as they are tasty and bring out flavours really well.
