Peas potato soya stuffed paratha

It might be reiterated but it is very important to have 3-4 types of food in your meal. Carb, protein, fiber, vegetable etc.

Complex carb when combined with protein helps sugar mix in blood slowly and helps us fill fuller for long term.

This recipe is great for tiffin box or breakfast. The stuffing can be prepared in advanced.
Makes 6-7 paratha
Soya minced: 1 cup
Green peas: 1 cup
Potato: 2 large
Grated Coconut: 2 table spoon
Coriander: chopped handful
Green chili: 3-4
Gigner: 1-2 inch
Cumin seeds: 1 table spoon
Garam masala: 1 tea spoon
Salt to taste
Oil: 1 table spoon

Wheat flour: 2 cups

Use frozen peas for this recipe. Defrost it. Churn it in blender to make coarse paste.

Make ginger, chili paste.

Boil water and add soya minced in it and cover it for a minute. Rinse off the excess water and squeeze out excess water.
Heat the pan, add oil 1 table spoon. Once the oil is hot add cumin seeds. Once seeds splutter, add ginger chili paste, green peas paste and mix well. Add soya minced and mix well.
