Potato and Peas Paratha

Today I was really feeling very tired and wanted to finish cooking fast. So was looking for something that can be made fast and only one item makes a full meal.. so browsed a book recently bought from India and found this something different... usually we make parathas with potato... in this an addition of some other things made it taste different... and everyone liked it too.... so here is the recipie..
For the filling
5-6 boiled potatoes
1 bowl boiled green peas
7-8 green chillies (if you dont want it too spicy then add chillies accordingly)
1/2'' piece of ginger (paste)
1/2 tsp garam masala
salt to taste
1/2 lime juice
For the dough
3 bowl plain flour (maida)
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp hot oil
1/2 lemon juice or 1 tbsp curd.
I had used 1 bowl maida and 2 bowl wheat flour... as I feel maida is not good for small kids to digest... so if you are going to serve this paratha to small children then use wheat flour mixed with maida or use wheat flour completely...
1. Mix maida (or wheat flour), salt, hot oil and lemon juice (or curd) and make a dough.
2. Smash boiled potatoes. Add boiled and smashed green peas, green chilli paste, ginger paste, lemon juice, garam masala and salt to it and mix everything.
3. Make a 2 small puris of the dough and put the filling on one puri. Close it with the second puri and secure the ends.
4. Roll it out slowly to around 4'' to 5'' and then put on the hot pan and roast it on both sides leaving little ghee.
5.Serve with any chutney or simply pickle and yoghurt.
