Green peas masala

Today’s post is of the authentic North Indian” green peas masala”. Before, I commence writing I am curious to know which is the difficult preparation for you? My difficulty has been baking but I have been able to manage it as I love doing it.I have had terrible times while baking cake,but now I am able to make good ones for my family.

            Is it the  curries or the rice dishes as pulavs and others or the Indian breads as the paratha and nan ? Or better still are you in search of healthy quick recipes for your children or is it only desserts ? Kindly leave your answer in the comment section of this post.

Green Peas Masala is tasty and makes a good accompaniment with roti ,nan or even chapati. It is good to use fresh peas , but if you are running  short, go in for the frozen peas.
