Green Channa Paratha

The other day I came across fresh Green Channa in our Indian Grocery Store. I have heard and read about green channa but never used it before. I brought some and used them as stuffing for parathas. It came out good. You can try this with regular channa as well.Enjoy

Preparation time:10-15 min 
Cooking time:20 min 


  • 3 cups Wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup Water
  • Salt as required.
  • Oil for parathas.

For stuffing:

  • Green channa ( 1/2 pound unpeeled).
  • 1/4 cup Green peas( I used frozen peas)
  • A pinch of  garam masala.
  • A pinch of turmeric.
  • 1/2 small Onion.
  • Salt as required.


  • Prepare the paratha dough by kneading the wheat flour,salt together with required water.
  • Finely chop the onions.
  • Cook the Green Channa and Green Peas until they turn soft.

  • I cooked them in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles.
  • Mash the cooked Channa and Peas into a fine paste.
  • Add Garam Masala,Turmeric,finely chopped onions to the mixture and set it aside.

  • Make small ball out of wheat flour and place the stuffing in and cover it.
  • Pat it with dry wheat flour and roll it into circular parathas. .
  • In a hot griddle pan / tava add some oil and place the paratha in it.
  • When you see bubbles rise on the surface of the paratha flip it.
  • Cook it for 2-3 minutes on the other side.
  • Green channa roti is ready to be served with raitha or yoghurt of your choice.

  • Cook the Channa well and mash them thoroughly so that you get even paraths.
  • When it is stuffing is watery add mashed potatoes .
