Green Peas Curry/Green peas Masala- Restaurant Style


Green peas is a seasonal vegetable and it was available only in winter 10 -12 years back in India but these days it is available around the year in the frozen form.
But nothing can beat the taste and the flavor of fresh peas from the pods and love those cuties in my curries and rice.
I buy the green peas in winter in a bulk and freeze it but today I made this curry from the fresh peas.This is a flavorful curry which is available in Annapurna restaurant to serve it along with naans and parathas.This is my close friend's recipe and now on to the recipe........................

Heat around 4 tbs of oil add onion and fry until it turns golden then add tomato and green chillies and fry for a minute.Add cooked green peas follows turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and fry it.
Then add the ground paste and add 1/2-3/4 cup of water(At this point if you feel oil is less add little more)Allow  it to boil,till the oil separates and become thick.Can garnish it with fresh green chillies and coriander leaves.
Serve it with roti or naan.

Enjoy............................................ 

  • This curry needs little more oil to get a nice taste,so do not compromise on the amount of oil.
  • Here I  didn't use red chilly powder only the green chillies but if you want you can add 1/2 tsp but the color will be different.
  • Cook the green peas in the microwave oven or a open pot.
