Green Peas Curry

For this dish, you can either use Fresh Green Peas or the Dried green peas which can be soaked for 6 hours and then pressure cooked. I used only 4 tsp of oil as we use coconut too, to make it little low in calories, hence it has to be stirred continuously to saute it in low flame. I use coconut oil for this recipe as the flavour is liked by everyone in my family.

  • Green Peas         - 1 Cup
  • Grated Coconut  - 2 tbsp
  • Cloves                - 2 Nos.
  • Garlic Pods        - 4 Nos
  • Cinnamon stick  -  1/2"
  • Cardamom        - 1 no.
  • Curry leaves      - 1 sprig
  • Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp
  • Bay Leaf           - 1 no.
  • Fennel (Saunf)  - 1 tsp
  • Onion               - 1 no. (big)
  • Oil                   - 4 tsp
  • Salt to taste





Procedure :-
  • Boil fresh peas, adding little salt & sugar (sugar helps retain its green colour) drain and keep aside.
  • Finely chop onions
  • To make a fine paste : Grated coconut, chopped Onion, Garlic pods, coriander leaves, Cinnamon, Cloves, Cardamom, Fennel seeds.
  • Heat Oil in a kadai, put Bay leaf.
  • Add the ground masala paste & saute till the raw smell goes.
  • Add the boiled green peas, curry leaves, required salt
  • Cook for 5-10 minutes in low flame
  • Green peas curry is ready to serve


PS: It goes well with rice, chapathi, vellai appam and puttu.
