In a mixer, combine 1/2 cup boiled green peas and 2 tablespoons water and blend well.
Transfer the ground peas to a mixing bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon low fat curd, 1 tablespoon green chilies, 1/8 teaspoon ajwain powder, the required amount of salt, and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour.
Gently knead for 5 minutes or until you have a smooth, elastic dough. (Should not become sticky; add very little flour if it sticks to your hands.)
Lightly flour your rolling surface.
Roll out the dough as thinly and evenly as possible with a rolling pin. (There should be no tiny holes!)
Heat your flat-surfaced tawa/pan/stone until you can feel the heat when you place your palm on it.
Place 1 chapathi on the pan to roast, making sure it is flat with no folds.
Serve with homemade curd and pickle
