Green Peas (Mutter) Paratha

Green Peas Paratha is very regular recipe for North Indians but I am sharing this recipe with some of my friends from south. I like to make different parathas and to eat also, so I am trying different types of parathas. This is very nutritive as well as delicious. Here I use Multi grain atta instead of wheat atta. One time I saw an advertisement of Multi grain atta of Pillsbury. Then I thought of making multi grain atta in home. I used the ingredients Wheat(3 kg),Pearl millet(1 kg),Soya beans(1/2 kg),Finger millet(1/2 kg)&Barley(1/2 kg). The color will be slightly dark comparing to whole wheat atta but the taste and the smoothness is fine. You can make instant dosa with this flour. I hope you like it to......Njoy cooking....
