To Make Peas Paratha:

2. Take one portion and roll it into a small circle ( palm sized) and spoon 2 tbsps of the peas filling. Fold the sides towards the top and seal the edges.

3. Flatten the dough ball and dip it in the flour on either sides and roll it gently to get parathas of desired thickness.

5. Repeat the same with the remaing dough and filling.
