Green peas and Edamame parathas

I was in the mood for parathas..and not the regular potato kind..dont get me wrong...I love those..but I just felt like something different..and my fridge was noticeably low on veggies which I could think of..no mooli, no palak..hmm...what now..how about those green peas in the frozen compartment..and why not add some edamame to it..just for fun..Im sure it cant go wrong..
So take 1 cup of green peas and 1 cup of edamame and thaw them..Run them in a chopper for couple of minutes..I kept them coarsely chopped...
Heat a tbsp of oil and add minced green-chilli and ginger (abt a tbsp) along with 1 tbsp of besan and stir well. Add the peas mixture and some garam masala and salt to taste. I crumbled some blasamic vinaigriatte marineted-tofu slices in it and cook till the raw feel is gone. Form small balls and fill in the paratha dough and roll out the parathas. Cook on tawa with some olive oil.
I served this with some fusion green-onion/potato bhaji and raita.
The peas/edamame taste was distinct and nice and satisfied me for packing in a bunch of nutrients !


  1. Wow love the pic..parathas look perfect!

  2. I too love experimenting with all sorts of additions to parathas, and I love trying out all sorts of things with wonderful edamame, so this sounds quite wonderful.
    A happy new year to you and yours, Dips,
