Peas Masala | Side dish for chapati, roti

Green Peas or fresh peas its mittus favourite and this gravy is her favorite too. I made this as a side dish for chapati packing it for my lunch last week and my office collegues just loved it and asked me for the recipe. The recipe is no fancy, its very simple now onto the recipe :)

Green Peas Masala Recipe
Ingredients:
  • Green Peas - 1 cup (I used dried variety)
  • Jeera - 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
  • Onion - 1/2 medium sized chopped finely
  • Turmeric powder - a pinch
  • Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Coriander leaves - 1 tsp finely chopped
  • Oil -2 tsp
  • Salt - as required

To grind :
  • Onion - 1 medium sized
  • Tomato - 2 medium

Green Peas Masala RecipeMethod:
1.Soak dried peas overnight or for 8 hrs(Just leave this step if you are using fresh / frozen peas). Pressure cook peas for 3 whistles until soft, drain water and keep aside.

Serve hot or warm with rotis or even rice. THis is semi dry curry so goes well even for rice.


Green Peas Masala RecipeMy Notes:
  • I have used dried peas here, you can use fresh/frozen peas too.
  • Adding little coconut while grinding will give a nice flavour to the gravy.
  • If you want more gravy then add 3 tomatoes in total.
  • You can serve it as a gravy for rotis or a dry curry for rice.
  • As the dried peas has a creamy texture the gravy tends to thicken up fast so add very little water for the gravy to be slightly runny.

This is a simple gravy which goes well with both rice and rotis. I feel dried peas suits well for this gravy though have tried with green peas also.
