  3. Fry until ginger starts turning brown, then drop asafetida. A few seconds later add the peas.
  4. Add remaining ingredients and stir-fry for about 2 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool. Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions.
  5. Make two medium size chapati, add the filling to the one chapati and cover it with the second one. Seal the edges so that mixture doesn’t come out.
