Peas and baby Spinach Curry

I made this last night to go with the rotis and it wasn't so bad:). I am still getting compliments from Prabu tonight for this:). You can use fresh or frozen peas but I used dried peas that I soaked over night and pressure cooked till they are a little soft but not too mushy. Also for this recipe store bought yogurt tastes better than home made curd.


Peas - 2 cups cooked
Onion - 1 small finely chopped
Baby Spinach leaves - roughly chopped 2 cups
Toamtoaes - 1 large finely chopped
Garlic - 3 cloves minced
Coriander powder - 2 tsps
Red Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Yogurt - 1/4 cup whipped smooth ( use st
Salt - to taste
turmeric - pinch
Oil - as needed


Heat oil in a pan. Add garlic. Stir for 30 seconds. Add onions and saute till onions are translucent. Add turmeric little bit of salt and spinach. stir for a minute and add coriander powder and red chilli powder. Saute till the raw smell of red chilli powder fades off.

Add peas and tomatoes and 1/2 cup of water. Cover and cook till tomatoes wilt and fall apart. Add the yogurt and stir and turn the stove off. Tastes good with rotis.
