    Aariq Skought's Note:

    This recipe is adapted from Madhur Jaffrey's World Vegetarian. It is originally titled "Green Peas with Coconut and Cilantro" but that sounds booooring. I've yet to meet someone who dosen't like the amazing peas.

      The flavour of the curry leaves and the rest of the spices really complimented the peas. I ate this with some fried chips and flat bread.

      We LOVED this recipe, both for the amazing flavour, as well as the very attractive colour on the plate. Add to that, it was fast and easy to make...a real winner!
