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.

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

  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 :)

    1. Hi Suja,
      Thank u so much for ur reply. I will try this recipe tonight, God willing.

      Thank u once again,
      May God bless you!

Kerala Chicken Roast

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Shrimp Biryani

Shrimp Biryani has a wonderful taste and flavor which makes it stand apart as one of the most popular and favorite among Biryani lovers. There are different ways to make an authentic shrimp Biryani. This is not an authentic one. It is inspired by the Goa shrimp Biryani which makes use of coconut milk and tomatoes instead of yogurt. When i read about this i had an instinct to make it as I wished to understand why Goa food is unique is in its flavor and taste. This recipe actually called for the traditional method of making it with raw shrimp and uncooked rice cooked in coconut milk. But I did not try that fearing that I will end up with a pulao. Luckily my method proved successful and the Biryani came out well and there is a wonderful aroma now in my kitchen.

Thai Fried Bananas

Thai Fried Bananas
Thai fried bananas is very popular in restaurants and also a yummy street food. When I first read the recipe it sounded interesting and I wanted to replicate this popular street food at home.It is made with Thai bananas and the batter is made with coconut milk and rice flour. The first time I saw these bananas fitters, I thought that it was just like the Kerala pazham pori/ plantain fitters. It looks somewhat similar,but this had a unique taste and favor.It has enticing flavor and taste of sweet banana, coconut milk and fresh grated coconut. The rice flour makes it super crispy.  This is a sure winner if you have sudden guests at home. 

You can find Thai banana at any South Asian market. If you cannot find them use any banana with a firm texture to make these fitters. Ripe plantains can also be used. It is a sweet dessert and can be served on its own,but to make it extra special serve it with some vanilla ice cream. Give this recipe a try, you will surely love it.
