Green Peas Masala/Green Peas in Green Masala

One of my fav veg dish Green peas Masala goes well with roti/chapati .The fresh ground coconut chutney gives this dish a lovely flavor and taste.You can use dessicated coconut too but the taste with freshly ground coconut is just too good.You could use frozen peas too.

2 cups Green Peas.
1cup fresh ground coconut
3-4 green chillies/as needed
1 cup fresh coriander leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds/jeera
4-5 garlic cloves
2 tbsp oil

Grind the coconut, cumin ,chillies  and garlic coriander leaves to  smooth paste.
In a cooker vessel heat oil add the ground paste ,saute for 5 min.
Add the green peas and stir for 3-4 min.
dd salt ans about 1.5 cup water mix well and pressure cook on high flame for
  2 whistles then simmer for 2-3 min.
Allow the steam to escape before you open the lid.
Serve with chapati/puri/any bread of your choice.

  10. Hi Gloria:)
    I have a confession to make. I don't like peas. There I said it:) I have been trying to add them to my diet since finding out how good they are for you. I really had no idea. I can barely eat them though. I think I will try them your way. Perhaps the coconut flavor will distract me from the peas, lol...

    Thank you so much for sharing, Gloria...
