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.

Sema, I love that masala ingredients, bet it tastes divine. Good one girl, thanks:)

Laavanya said...

That's really easy Seema and the coconut must make it really creamy and yummy.

Kribha said...

Recipe sounds like kurma ,but I noticed the variation of using tamarind in this. Maybe that's why u didn't use tomatoes. Looks yum.

Richa said...

wow! it's ur all time fav? then gotta' try it!
looks very tempting!

TBC said...

That looks good , Seema. Maybe I will try it out with tindora 'cos I don't like peas a lot:-)

Seema said...

Asha- Thanks.It tastes good!

Laav- Coconut & Corriander mixtures brings out a great flovour.

Kribha-This is a Konkani recipe Kribha...Tamarind just a tiny pinch.. even if u leave it no big deal.

Richa - Do try.. it's Yum!

TBC- Tindora comes out excellent too - just chop them & fry a little till 50% cooked & then add masala.

Ok, I'm a general peas freak and am totally sold on this recipe. In fact, the gravy looks like something that would go well with a lot of different veggies!
