Pea Pods Curry Recipe

Pea Pods Curry Recipe

Ingredients :

Pods from 500 g peas

1 tablespoon ghee

1 medium onion, chopped finely

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped finely

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon chili powder

2 ripe tomatoes, diced

4 small potatoes, peeled and diced

Salt to taste


Method :

Separate the pea pods into half. Hold each half with the inner side towards you and bend stalk end inwards so that the fleshy part of the pod cracks. Then pull downwards, peeling off and discarding the thin, silk-like inner lining of the pod. Wash the pods and remove any strings from the edges. Heat a wok with ghee and fry the onion and ginger over low heat until the onion is soft and golden brown. Add turmeric, salt, garam masala and chili powder, stir and fry for a minute or two. Then add the tomatoes, potatoes and pea pods. Stir well, cover and cook until potatoes and pea pods are tender. It may be necessary to add a few spoonfuls of water if curry tends to stick to the base of the pan, but if it is cooked on low heat and stirred occasionally, the liquid from the tomatoes will be sufficient. This curry should be quite dry. Serve with white rice, chapatis or parathas.
