Peas masala



Ingredients:

Hard peas – 2 cups
Onions – 2
Tomatoes – 1, chopped fine
Garlic – 1-inch piece
Ginger – 8 cloves
Green chilies – 2, slit vertically
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Coriander/Dhania Powder -1-1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 2 tsp
Garam Masala Powder -1/2 tsp
Salt – As required
Oil – 1 tbl spn


Preparation:

Soak the peas overnight.  Wash and pressure cook with salt.

Grate one onion and cut the other one into small square pieces.  Make a paste of garlic and ginger and keep aside.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add the onion pieces and fry them till they start turning brownish.  Add grated onion and keep stirring it till the paste turns light brown.  Add the green chillies and the the tomatoes and cook for a few minutes till the tomatoes turn mushy.  Now add the garlic-ginger paste and turmeric, cumin, coriander and chilli powder and stir it occasionally till good smell comes and the paste turns golden-brown. Add the peas and also water, but take care not to add too much water, just enough to cover the peas and cook for sometime.  When the gravy is thick enough, add garam masala powder and mix it well and remove from fire.




Serve hot with rotis or kulcha.  Tastes good with Bhatura also.
