GREEN PEAS POTATO CURRY

It is very tasty curry and I like this curry very much so in my house, we are making green peas dishes weekly once. I got this recipe from my aunt and I followed the same procedure first and it was very tasty but here, I changed the method because I would like to make my own preparation. To get variety and new curry I added potato to this curry and also used thick coconut milk instead of water. Its taste will increase if we use thick coconut milk completely and curry will become very thick. I have used roasted pasted masala so that it will have the flavour of non-vegetarian curry. Mainly it is served as the side dish with appam for breakfast and with rice for lunch and also can use with chapatti. To get very soft and tasty green peas we have to sock it in water for one overnight before cooking. Quantity also will increase if we sock it in water for one overnight. Green peas taste will be very bad if we cook it immediately. This curry has very good masala flavour and we should not add any artificial flavours to this curry. This curry is completely natural and healthy. We can use butter instead of using coconut oil at last.  We can serve it to guest for breakfast because it is very tasty vegetarian curry and combination of green peas and potato are very nice and everyone can enjoy a lot with this tasty vegetarian curry.

I can say that it is entirely different from other fish curries because its colour and method of preparation is completely different from others. It can make it by using any type of fishes.
