Matar Masala

Well I might have joined this group of food blogging enthusiasts very late but I am fortunate to be a part of the BM#25 which is a landmark of its own. A lot ladies took a trip to Ahmedabad and spent a couple of days  giving, receiving and learning. I could not be  a part of it but I am glad to be cooking for this month’s theme. I am a day late but what the heck. I made it 🙂 Check out the **Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#25

This is a really quick fix when I run out of most of the veggies. I always have a bag of peas in the freezer. Since we are getting fresh ones right now, I am freezing the “real” deal right out of the shell. Pati and I love peas in all forms.

I made this curried peas to be devoured with toast/bhakri/poori one morning and we were set till afternoon.

It needs very basic ingredients actually. 🙂
