This recipe is from my relative who is a great

friend of me.She makes this curry using fresh

peas available during the season.The frozen peas doesnot

suit this curry.I made this with dries peas.It comes out

really good.

onion - 1 big

chilli powder - 1 tsp

coriander powder - 1 tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp

ginger - 1/2 inch

cashew - 1 tblsp

coconut milk - 1/2 cup

salt to taste.


Soak the peas in water for 6 hrs.

Grind ginger and cashew to a fine paste.

Pressure cook the peas for 3 whistle.

Now add all the powders one by one and ginger-cashew paste

Then add 1/2 cup of water and coconut milk.

Keep it in a low flame till the oil separates.
