Peas Masala

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Friday, April 18, 2014 | 4:32 PM

I was looking through my cook books and I found my diary of recipes. I had some of these recipes copied from my sister in law,Renu Manni. She always made interesting food and it always inspired me to learn from her. She let me have some of her recipes and this is one of them. I used to like this peas masala a lot and decided to make it for dinner. I served it over quinoa and bhindi fry which was very comforting. It goes well with roti's, naan and any rice preparation.
