Green Peas Masala

Green Peas masala serves as a good spread on a bread toast or as a side dish for rotis , chapathis or with curd/rasam rice. Its a very simple dish , which can be made quite quickly if you have frozen peas sitting in the freezer. Its my savior on those days when i get up late and have to pack a quick lunch for work, and don't have time to spend on chopping veggies.

Green Peas Masala

Method
