Green Peas Kurma

Here posted one of my favorite gravies - green peas kuruma.I wanted to post this a long back,but only now i did fine time.This is a very very simple and tasty gravy without garlic and other masalas.U can replace peas with mixed veggies too..Tastes great with roti,naan and even dosas.


1.Green peas......150 gms

2.Finely chopped onions....1 cup

3.Tomato.......1(finely chopped)

4.Red chilly powder........1 full spoon

5.Green chilli............ 2 diced

6.Salt to taste

7.Oil...........3 -5 spoons

8.Turmeric powder.........1/2 spoon

9.Cumin...........1/2 tsp

To grind:

1.Grated coconut...........3/4 cup

2.Kasa kasa ........1/2 tsp

3.Cashew nuts........5  to 8 nos


1.Soak peas over night.Allow this to sprout,so that it becomes rich in protein.Steam cook peas with little water.

2.Grind coconut,soaked cashew nuts and kas-kas to a fine paste with little water.

3.Place a kadai on flame,add oil,cumin,onion,turmeric powder and green chilli.Once the onion turns transparent,add tomato and fry till it cooks.

4.Now add red chilli powder,salt and peas.Mix it well.

5.At last add the grounded paste and 100 - 200 ml of water.Close this with a lid.Let this cook for 10  - 15 minutes.Stir it once in a while.

6.Prepare this in gravy style.This is a simple dish without garlic and other spices.

Note:Sprouted peas help us to avoid gastric problem,rich in protein as well,so whenever u use peas/any grain,try this tip.
        Use fresh peas if u like,this add more taste to the recipe.
