Sharing a family recipe which is again a favorite with my folks. The recipe is the most simplest version of matar paratha with minimal spices. so what you get is the taste and flavor of peas without being dominated by too many of spices.

Best are to use fresh green peas. in India, winters is the time for fresh green peas and I am kind of late in posting the recipe. But still fresh peas are available in the market. So you can give a try making these parathas. if you really do not have any option, then make with frozen peas. This stuffed paratha recipe is also a no onion no garlic recipe.
