Cheese and Peas Paratha(Indian Flat Bread)


Cheese and green peas paratha is yet another healthy lunch box and kid friendly recipe.I usually cut the parathas in squares,triangles or make small round parathas.You can even use a cookie cutter to make star and heart shaped parathas.
Ingredients
Boiled green peas-1/2 cup
Garlic-1 clove
Green chilli(optional)-1/2
Processed cheese cubes/slices-1
Salt to taste
Oil-to make the parathas
For the Dough
Whole wheat flour(atta)-2cups
Salt-1/4 teaspoon
Carom seeds(Ajwain)-1/4 teaspoon
Water-1/2 cup

Method
To Make the Dough
-Add the boiled green peas,garlic,green chilli and a pinch of salt in a blender and mixer and blend to make a fine paste.Do not add water.
-Take a big container and put the whole wheat flour,salt and carom seeds.Mix well.
-Add the green peas paste to the wheat flour and mix well with your hand.
-Grate the cheese cube or simply mash the cheese slice and put it in the wheat flour.
-Add little water and make the dough by moving the flour mixture is circular direction.
-Repeat this process to make a nice and soft dough.Allow the dough to rest for 10-15 minutes.

To Make the Parathas 
-Take a rolling pin and a cup of wheat flour(atta)

-Take a small portion of the dough,make a round ball and dust it with whole wheat flour.
-Press the ball with your hands to make the dough flat.
-Roll gently to make round parathas.The edges should be rolled properly so the they do not remain thick.
-You can cut the parathas into the desired shapes or just make small round parathas.
-Heat a pan and put the paratha.Turn it to the other side after 2-3 minutes.
-Apply 1/2 teaspoon of oil only when both the sides are cooked properly.
-Take out and serve hot with green coriander chutney.
