Recipe by Aariq Skought

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.
