A truly simple but tasty dish. This Green Peas Curry is great served with Indian Bread like Paratha, Bature, Chapathi or Naan. It’s also yummy with Aappam, Idiyappam orr Puttu. My favorite is Green Peas and Paratha.

It is a flavorsome curry and great for a quick and lazy weekend breakfast

Notes: 
  • Adjust the water and salt to your taste but it should be a thick gravy.
  • If desired , swirl in 1 Tbsp of fresh cream into the dish just before serving. This creates an attractive swirl as well as adding flavor and creaminess.
