The paratha is an important part of a traditional indian breakfast. Traditionally, it is made using ghee but oil is also used. Some people may even bake it in the oven for health reasons. Usually the paratha is eaten with dollops of white butter on top of it. Side dishes which go very well with paratha are curd, Raita, jeera aloo, Pickle daal, and raita as part of a breakfast meal. It may be stuffed with potatoes, paneer, onions, Green peas or chili peppers.
These Green peas and Paneer parathas are the perfect breakfast recipe to enjoy. They are so mildly spiced and satiating breakfast and main course that helps keep acidity at bay. It goes well even with any Raita or with simple mango Pickle too. I made these Parathas in our yesterday's dinner.
