IllegalArgumentException when sending Parse Cloud Code with Arguments

Im having a problem when sending a Cloud Code Request with parameters as a HashMap. The Funny thing is that if I send a request with empty parameters, it works perfectly fine.
Here is my code for the request (Updated with ishmaelMakitla's answer) :

Map<String, Object> par = new HashMap<String, Object>();
par.put("ingredients", new String[]{"hey"});
ParseCloud.callFunctionInBackground("", par, new FunctionCallback() {
@Override
public void done(Object o, Throwable throwable) {
Log.v("28", "" + o);
Log.v("27", "" + throwable.getMessage());
for (Object obj : (ArrayList)o) {
Log.v("29",""+((ParseObject) obj).get("title"));
}
}

@Override
public void done(Object object, ParseException e) {
Log.v("26", "" + object);
if (e != null) {
Log.v("27", "" + e);
}
for (Object obj : (ArrayList)object) {
Log.v("25",""+((ParseObject) obj).get("title"));
}
}
});


And my Cloud Code Method:

Parse.Cloud.define ('getFoo', function (req, res) {
var arrayIngredients = [];
arrayIngredients = req.params.ingredients;
var recepyQuery = new Parse.Query("Foos");
recepyQuery.find( {
success: function(result) {
res.success(result);
},
error: function() {
res.error("Nothing here");
}
});
});


This code works perfectly, but if i uncomment the par.put(...) part, it gives this error:

com.parse.ParseException: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: invalid type for ParseObject: class [Ljava.lang.String;


This is my error stack:

Is this a mistake I made or there is an issue with Parse?
Im using Parse Server and Parse's Android SDK 1.13.0

Answer

Instead of passing the String[] in the value, simply pass a String, for this you should change your requesting code as follows -

Map<String, Object> par = new HashMap<String, Object>();
par.put("ingredients", "someIngredientValue"});
ParseCloud.callFunctionInBackground("getFoo", par, new FunctionCallback() {
  @Override
  public void done(Object o, Throwable throwable) {
    Log.v("28", "" + o);
    Log.v("27", "" + throwable.getMessage());
    for (Object obj : (ArrayList)o) {
      Log.v("29",""+((ParseObject) obj).get("title"));
    }
  } 
//the rest of your code ...

On the receiving end, you then say request.params.ingredients - this should give you 'someIngredientValue'. I hope this helps.
