People who know me, knew already ‘how much I hate vegetables’ especially when something is so green and not-so-mobile,….boy why eat that’ is my first response! Well, am a meat person:) I love to add a hint of my secret ingredient to the regular healthy veggie fare. Yeah, little meaty sauce is my love-potion:) It certainly adds up the flavor and makes one to dine without any complaints.
However, today…I didn’t do anything like that! No sir, no sneaky business…I didn’t. But all I did was…a simple addition of spoonful of Madras curry powder. And can you believe this…it totally changed the whole affair…this simple peas curry became an instant success on my dinner table. And, certainly…I found the key to my healthy eating habit, now:) Woweee…isn’t that nice:)
Fresh green peas/ I used frozen though:(
Green chili 1 minced
Garlic 2 minced
Ginger 2″ grated
Onion 1 chopped
Tomato 2 crushed
Cilantro leaves few
Turmeric 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Coriander powder 1/2 spoon
Madras curry powder 1-2 spoons
Fennel seeds 1 spoon
Oil few spoons.
In a wide and heavy bottomed vessel, heat oil. Add fennel seeds and followed by fresh spices.
Fry real good until aromatic. Then add green peas and powdered ingredients to it.
Add 2 cups of water, cover and cook till tender. Once oil shows up on the sides, remove from heat.
Serve warm along with steamed rice. And I have no objection if you decide to eat it with rotis or pulkahs.
