  2. Onion – 1 small, thinly sliced
  3. Tomato – 1 small, chopped
  4. Green chillies – 2, seeded
  5. Curry leaves – 1 sprig
  6. Grated coconut – 1/2 – 3/4 cup

1) Soak green peas in water for at least 6 – 7 hrs. Drain and keep aside.


2) Grind the grated coconut with cumin seeds to a very smooth paste.


3) Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add sliced onions and green chillies. Saute until transparent and add the turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder and garam masala.
