How to make Carrot Matar Paratha Recipe
To begin making Carrot Matar Paratha Recipe, in a bowl mix together wheat flour. salt and oil. Add water, little at a time and prepare a soft dough just as we make dough for rotis.
Grease your hands with oil and knead it well. Cover it and let it rest for some time .
Now to prepare stuffing, we first mash steamed peas in a large bowl. Add the grated carrot, chopped onion, chopped green chillies and fresh chopped coriander and mix well.
Now add all dry spices in mixture - carom seeds, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, chaat masala and mix everything well.
Now make even size ball out of paratha dough and roll out the ball in a small circle dusting wheat flour.
Add some stuffing in the centre and gather all the corners and seal it well and press it lightly.
Dust some wheat flour and roll out the sealed dough into a circle as we do for chapati dough. Don't apply too much pressure while rolling.
Place a tawa on medium to high flame, and place the rolled out paratha on it. Let it cook a little bit on one side,flip it over to the other side and spread some ghee over the paratha which is half cooked.
Flip it again, when the second side is half cooked ,spread some ghee. Flip a few more times to get paratha browned and cooked well. Take of the tawa and cook the rest of the parathas in a similar way
