Peas-Peanut Paratha

Who does not enjoy a hot, buttery, full of beautiful stuffing paratha? I dont want to brag but my parathas are coming out super super well 😉 They are full of filling and are thin even with as much as 1.5-2 tbsp filling in a dough ball almost of a size of ping pong ball.

This one is an invention from my kitchen 😀 I love peas and peanuts equally. Well maybe peas a little more.
