Pattani Kurma | Easy Green Peas Kurma - No Onion, No Garlic

No onion no garlic easy and tasty green peas curry.

This recipe is as simple as delicious that doesn't need more then 15 minutes of preparation time and 15 minutes of cooking time. When the seasonal vegetables arrives the market, it our prior preference to use it as maximum. This is one such recipe I use to opt for when fresh green peas are in market. This fresh peas is available during winter / spring time.

Sometimes I use to buy fresh peas in bulk, zip lock and freeze it for longer life. So can be used as needed. Green peas are loaded with vital nutrients like vitamin A, C, B-1, B-6. So I often use peas in my cooking for upma, khichidi, with sabzis. Try this kurma with jeera pulao, Phulka, Aapam.
