Uma Aunty's Green Peas curry

I have learnt how to cook most of the dishes from my Mother-In-Law,as I could't cook at all when I got married and lived with them  for the first few months.My MIL not only taught me the techniques of cooking but also gifted her precious cookery book to me.This dish actually comes from her friend 'Uma Aunty' and we started addressing this dish as 'Uma Aunty's peas curry'.This one is for my MIL who still is a great cook!!!!

Green Peas-100 grams
Coconut-4 Tbs
Green chillies-8
Onion-2 sliced
Saunf-1/2 tsp
Tomato puree-1/2 cup
Salt and oil as needed.

  • Grind cashewnuts,coconut,spices,green chillies and saunf.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and fry the onions till they turn brown
  • Add the ground masala to it and fry till the raw smell goes
  • Now add the tomato puree,fry well followed by green peas
  • Finally add some water and salt.
  • Once it becomes a thick gravy add some oil and serve hot.

Goes well with Kerala Porotta and chappathis.
