Easy Spicy Curried Peas

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Anu_N

This is a fantastic recipe for curried peas, spicy, flavourful and quick! Adjust the amount of red chili powder if you want to reduce the spiciness. If using fresh peas, you might need to add a little water to cook the peas. With frozen peas, additional water is not necessary.

Quite good! I made it for lunch this afternoon for mom, my brother and myself. I used 3 1/4 cups of greenpeas, 3/4 tsp. red chilli powder, 3/4 tsp. salt, and the same quantities of the remaining ingredients. I cooked this for 20-25 minutes. We enjoyed it with rotis, rice and bread(I had a little with each!) Note: I didn't have readymade coconut milk, so I made it by dissolving 4 tsps. of coconut-milk powder in some water in a bowl, mixed well and then used it.
