Peas Masala

Peas Masala is a yummy side dish that goes well with roti and pulao varieties like Jeera Rice or any mild pulao.. Mostly when I run out of vegetables I make this dish, as frozen peas is one vegetable that is always available in my kitchen.

Now to the recipe…

Tips:

  1.  You can use frozen peas or fresh peas.
  2. I haven’t added ginger garlic paste or garam masala because I prefer the coriander & mint leaves flavour to dominate. You can add as per your choice.
  3. You can add fresh cream too.
