Matar Paratha

Matar Paratha/Green Peas Paratha

Winter comes and it brings the seasons of green peas with it.Matar or green peas is one of my favouriate vegetable. We can do so many things with Matar. I really liked the matar Paratha. Like any another paratha it can be served with Raita,chutneys, Simple curd or even pickles. I have learnt this recipe from my mom. Sometimes my mom used to add Jaggery in it but i love to make it simple without any sweetness.

Hope you all will like it
