Today, I would like to share one vegetarian dish which is called as Green Peas Potato masala mix. Its main ingredients are Green Peas and Potato and I used dried Green Peas to make this dish. It is very tasty dish and it can serve as the side dish with rice, chapati and appam. Potato and Green Peas are very tasty ingredients so this masala mix also will have a good taste. I used traditional ingredients to make this dish so it has a good traditional flavour and taste. It is medium spicy dish and its main flavours are fennel seeds powder and garam masala powder.
