    Sue Lau's Note:

    A nice spicy side dish for curries and other Indian dishes! Can easily be part of a Western meal- serve with steaks and a potato dish for an interesting change of pace.

      Had this origianlly as a side with curried dal and basmati, but I ended up stirring it all together. Regardless, it was a delicious and wonderful addition to my Indian meal.

      I don't even like peas but this was awesome! I didn't have garam masala on hand so I improvised some using a recipe on the site (minus the cardamom, which, sadly, I don't have). Also, I couldn't find my cayenne (GRR!), so I used chili powder. I can only imagine what these peas will taste like with these two ingredients. I will definitely be making this again and again.

      We liked this as a side dish with Aloo Ka Saag #137088 and steamed brown rice. It was easy and tasty and the flavors were a good compliment for the rest of the meal. Thanks !
