Easy Everyday Peas Curry....step by step.


Everyday peas curry or nadan peas curry is something which I cook atleast once a week to have with puttu, roti, or idiyappam etc. Dried peas is soaked overnight and cooked with spices....nothing fancy, just an everyday curry popular in most Indian homes....a simple curry...so very homely....and comforting.



This is so easy to make.....and perfect curry for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.......a completely vegan dish.

So lets get cooking:

Notes: If you are using frozen green peas, then cook for only one whistle in the pressure cooker, and then switch off.
Can add more water if needed or can add coconut milk.

Author: Nisa Homey.
Ingredients:
Dried Green Peas: 250 gm, soaked overnight.
Onions: 1 medium, sliced.
Tomatoes: 2, medium, chopped.
Ginger-Garlic paste: 1 tsp.
Kashmiri Chilly Powder: 1 1/2 tsp.
Fresh Coriander Powder: 2 tsp.
Garam Masala: 1 tsp.
Turmeric Powder: 1/2 tsp.
Fresh Pepper Powder: 1/2 tsp.
Mustard Seeds: 1/4 tsp.
Whole Spices: Cinnamon, cloves, peppercorns-1/4 tsp each.
Curry leaves
Salt to taste.
Refined Oil: 2 tbsp, can add more if you are not calorie conscious.

Method:
Wash and clean the soaked green peas.


In a pressure cooker, heat 2 tbsp oil, and add in the mustard seeds and the whole spices. Than add the sliced onion, curry leaves, ginger garlic paste and fry till onion starts to brown...on low flame.


Once the onion starts to brown add in the Kashmiri chilly powder, coriander, turmeric, pepper, and garam masala. Mix well, and lightly fry it till the raw flavor diminishes.


Add in the tomatoes and salt. Mix well. You can add a teeny bit of water, as it helps the juices to come out.


Mix well until it is all mushy and blended.


Add in the soaked dry peas.


Pour 1 1/2 cups of water, check salt. Close the pressure cooker and put the flame on high, once whistle comes, simmer the fire for 7 min and then switch off the fire. Once the steam settles it is ready to use.


Serve hot. I served with iddiyapam/rice noodles

  4. Nisa,

    Good step by step pictures of Green peas (green vatana)curry. If you use yellow vatana instead of green it will turn Ragda pattice curry.Next time try adding half cup chana dal for more taste...some times I mix chole too.

    Have you tried making chat dish using the same curry? Add finely chopped onions, tomatoes,green chili...drizzle sweet sour chat chutney, and chat masala, chopped hara dhania,some fine sev. It tastes delicious.
