Jeev Batana Bhuthi (Green Peas Curry)
Jeev Batana Bhuthi - Literal translation is fresh peas curry, is a dish that goes well with Rice or chappathi. Its my all time favourite !!
Green Peas - 2 cups
Coconut - 3/4th cup
Red Chillies - 4
Corriander seeds - 2tsps
Tamarind - a pinch
Onions - 3
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 2tbspns
1. Roast red chillies in a little oil. Then grind together coconut, tamarind, Red chillies, corriander seeds to a fine paste.
2. In a pan add oil & add mustard seeds, when it splutters, ass the finely chopped onions & fry till transparent.
3. Then add the ground masala & saute for few minutes. Now add the peas, add little water & salt & let it simmer for 10 minutes till you get desired consistency.
Serve hot!! You can make this same curry with just onions or even tindora. Comes out great.
