She loves Food,She Loves to eat and Loves to share her recipes also...Mostly Indian recipes...Welcome to Mousumi's Kitchen....

Green peas are now "IN" for the winter season. I buy them in a bulk now and freeze it. Because I use them in most of my vegetable dishes. After the Creamy Green Peas, I tried the peas masala, which is a very common dish for this season. But every cook has some difference in their cooking method, like South Indian people add some different flavors/dry coconut etc... In my case, my dish is perfectly North Indian type. I don't prefer to use dry coconut paste/ coconut milk for any dish.Yesterday I tried the dish for my dinner and it became a super hit.Hope you all vegetable lovers like the dish.It is less time consuming green veg dish.

I have already mentioned some tips about peas like how to choose them from the store and the health factor of green peas in my earlier hub i.e. Creamy Green Peas.
