Peas Curry

Green Peas


  1. Green Peas - 1 cup
  2. Onions - 2 (minced)
  3. Tomato - 1 (chopped)
  4. Ginger Garlic paste - 2tsp
  5. Green chillies - 2 (slit lengthwise)
  6. Coriander powder - 2 tsp
  7. Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
  8. Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp
  9. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  10. Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
  11. Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
  12. Curry leaves- a sprig
  13. Oil - for sauting onions
  14. Salt - to taste


Cook peas with just enough salted water. If there is more water, the gravy will become too watery.

While peas is getting cooked, heat oil in a pan and sauté onions until golden brown.
Add ginger-garlic paste, green chillies, curry leaves and the chopped tomatoes. Saute for few more minutes till tomatoes are cooked.

Turn the heat to low and add coriander powder, chilly powder, jeera powder and turmeric powder. Saute till the aroma comes. Be careful not to burn the powders, otherwise the curry will taste bitter.

Add the peas along with water in which it was cooked and combine. Simmer for 8-10 minutes until you see the oil separating and the gravy thickens.

Add the coconut milk and simmer for one more minute.

Your peas curry is ready! Serve with Chapatti, Appam or bread.
