Peas corn stuffing can be used to stuff in a paratha or used for making a patty for burgers. This is another favorite for my kids for school lunch. Make the stuffing once and can be used in 2 different dishes. This stuffing has a nice balance of sweet and spices. Adding the finely chopped onion gives a nice texture to the paratha, also it prevents us from rolling the paratha very thin. Generally paratha has to be slightly thick. Make the paratha or burgers and wrap it in aluminum foil and send it for lunch.
potato 2 small
corn 1/2 cup
peas 1/2 cup
onion 1/2 cup finely chopped
bread crumbs 3 tsp
garam masala 1 tsp
red chilly powder 3/4 tsp
chaat masala 1/4 tsp
lime/lemon juice 1/2 tsp
for paratha dough
wheat flour 1 cup
ghee/ clarified butter 2 tsp
salt to taste
water as needed to mix dough
oil 1/2 cup
Cook potato, peas and corn in water for about 8 mins in microwave oven, till they are soft but not mushy.
Mash potato, peas and corn.
Add onion, bread crumbs, garam masala, red chilly powder, chaat masala, lime/lemon juice and salt to the mashed mixture.
Mix well, make small lemon sized balls and set aside.
Mix wheat flour, ghee, salt and water to make a firm dough.
Note: don’t make the dough wet, will make it hard to roll.
Divide the dough evenly into balls of 2 inches diameter, roll them.
Place a ball of the stuffing and close the edges of the rolled dough to make a ball.
Dust some atta on a clean surface, and roll it into a slightly thick roti using a rolling pin. Dust more atta if needed while rolling.
Heat a tava/griddle and cook the rolled roti on both sides by applying little oil so that it doesn’t look dry.
Enjoy the stuffed paratha !!
Below is the alternate use of the stuffing mixture. Will be great for snack or pack it to kids lunch..
Take a spoon full of the stuffing mixture and roll it like a patty.
Toast it on a hot pan on both sides by adding lil oil.
Toast a mini burger bun and place the toasted patty in between buns.
Enjoy with mint and dates chutney…
