GREEN PEAS MASALA CURRY

Green Peas is very good vegetable item which is very useful for vegetarians. We can get fresh Green Peas with attractive Green colour in super markets. But fresh Green Peas will not available in every store so we can use dried Green Peas to make dishes. We can store it for long terms and every house will have Green Peas at any time. Every Green Peas dishes are really tasty and Green Peas is my favourite item. Today I made Green Peas masala curry which is made by Dried Green Peas. I didn't get fresh Green Peas so I used it. Its taste will increase if you use fresh Green Peas. It is an excellent combination with Rice, Chapati and Appam. Mainly I am using it as the side dish with Appam for breakfast. I have made it so many times in my house because everyone in my family likes this very much especially my father.  Its gravy is very thick and it can make very easily at home. This dish will be available in some hotels for breakfast. I have tasted if from some hotels in Kerala. Dishes will have good taste if mix Tomato and masala powders. This is completely traditional dish and usually traditional dishes will have good taste without adding any artificial ingredients, so everybody is searching the place where getting traditional dishes. This dish is very healthy dish because it contains fibers. This dish is having the smell and flavours of Garam Masala Powder and Cumin Seeds Powder.
