Peas Masala Curry

There’s always peas involved in any scene of a movie where the parents make sure that their kids are eating their veggies. While it is fine to eat it steamed or boiled with some tasty protein as the main course, it is even more delicious when paired with Indian spices and flavors in a curry. Peas are a great source of vitamins and are good for your heart as well. Growing up, my aunt made this amazing peas curry which I used to devour with a plateful of chapatis (Indian flatbread) every time I went to India for my summer holidays. While this curry is not exactly the same as that, it does remind me of a bit of my childhood.

    I’m imagining that chick peas would work as well with that recipe. (that’s because I love my chickpeas.) Thanks for the idea.
