matar puri, hare matar ki puri - green peas puri recipe

Matar Puri or Green Peas Puri also called as Hare Matar ki Puri in hindi is yet another easy tasty and healthy recipe. Green Peas are abundantly available in markets during this winter. So I thought of trying much more new recipes using green peas. I made this recipe and it came out very well. It is much more tasty than I have expected. I have made it for the first time and my hubby fell in love with the puffed up green puris. So beautiful the colour was and also so refreshing and appetizing.

Matar Puri is a quick and easy puri recipe, you just need to grind green peas using very few ingredients which adds spice to the puri and have to mix this paste with flour and make a soft dough.

Roll into discs and fry, Pooris puffed up like ping pong balls are ready in your plate. I served them with pickle, you can serve it with any mildly flavored chutneys. Since it is already spicy I felt no need to use any curry or gravy as sides for this Green Peas Puri.
