The highlight of this paratha is its stuffing, which is quite unique despite using common ingredients.

The combination of slightly mashed potatoes and green peas gives the mixture a unique texture and a special, mealy mouth-feel, which is made all the more enticing by the addition of myriad spice powders.

Since the stuffing is not dry and soft, we will not be rolling it up in the dough and pressing it again into a circle, like usual Parathas . Instead, we will simply be folding the mixture into circles made of the dough, which makes the Stuffed Potato and Green Peas Paratha more attractive and also reduces the preparation time.
