How to make Ghuguni (Yellow Peas Curry)

  2. Cut the onion and tomato into small pieces. Peel the potato and cut it into medium sized cubes.
  3. Heat oil in a deep vessel. When it starts smoking, add the cumin seeds and bay leaf. Wait till it splutters, then add the onion pieces.
  4. Fry the onion for about 2-3 minutes, then add ginger-garlic paste. Cook till it slightly reddens, then add the potato pieces ,tomatoes, salt and turmeric powder. Fry this for about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the cumin powder, coriander powder and chilli powder. Stir for 2 minutes, then add the boiled peas along with 1 and 1/2 cup water. Bring it to a boil.
  6. Add the garam masala, mix and remove it from fire.

My Tip:

You can use onion paste instead of chopped onion for a richer and thicker version of ghuguni.
