Green Peas Egg Curry




Green Peas Egg Curry

A Simple and breezy curry for appam or chapatis. Both egg and green peas forms an awesome combo.This is a typical Kerala style curry which is a good side dish for appam. It is a flavorful, mild, creamy and tangy sauce with coconut milk and tomato puree. Usually it is made with dried green peas which you have to soak overnight. But here I have used frozen ones.



Ingredients
Frozen green peas- 1 1/2 cup
Hard boiled eggs- 3
Onion- 1 medium
Tomato puree- 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste- 11/2 tsp
Coconut milk thick-3/4 cup
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Meat masala- 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves


Heat oil in a pan and saute onions till golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder and saute for a minute. Add  tomato puree(  you can add chopped tomatoes too) and salt and saute till oil separates. Add frozen green peas, chilly powder,coriander powder and  masala. Close lid and allow to cook. Add coconut milk and boiled eggs and allow to simmer. Finally add chopped coriander leaves. Serve warm with appam/ parottas or pathiri.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy

  37. Hi, I read ur recipe, looks yum and easy to cook.
    I have a question, will this taste like the one served in the hotels in Kerala? I have never tasted this before, but my husband likes that peas and egg curry with appam. Just curious to know and make it sure whether this is that one. Please reply.. Thank U! Nasifa

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Nasifa,thanks for stopping by and so glad that you liked this recipe..This is a simple home style recipe which my mom taught me and it is delicious and perfect with appam.

    In hotels I think they use dry peas and soak it over night. This one I tried with frozen peas.

    There is also one more recipe which my mom makes with frozen peas and egg. If you have left over chicken curry gravy you can add a little of that too,all the rest is the same as the recipe above. It also tastes very yummy....if you like try that too some other time..

    Pls try the recipe,hope you will like it.
    Have a nice day :)

Pepper Prawns Fry

Pepper Prawns Fry
Deep fried spicy and salty prawns is irresistible and one of my favorite ways to eat prawns. This crispy fry will be a perfect treat for your family. Pepper Prawns fry is crispy fried prawns with exciting flavors of garlic,butter,zesty lemon and kick of pepper.It is my take to butter garlic shrimp,but a little spicy.This recipe is so versatile and easy to prepare.

If you get fresh prawns try frying it head on, it has an irresistible delicate crispness to it, juicy and equally tasty.Thanks to hubby who convinced me that the head is the most flavorful part of prawns...so true.If you are not a fan of the head,no worries, it is still tasty and irresistible.

The spicy marinade has black pepper,roasted bell pepper and bird eye chili. Bird eye chili is  hot spicy one,if you cannot handle the heat you can skip it or substitute with a less spicy one.Roasting pepper enhances the flavor and bird eye chili and black pepper contributes a little heat which is the key to this reci…
