Ingredients Serving: 2

  1. 2 cup green peas (fresh or frozen)
  2. 1 medium Red Onion, finely chopped
  3. 3 cloves garlic
  4. 1 inch piece ginger
  5. 1 green chilli
  6. 1 tablespoons chopped mint
  7. 1 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  8. 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  9. 2 Bay Leaves
  10. 1 cardamom pod
  11. 1 inch piece cinnamon
  12. salt as per taste


  1. In a large pot, bring about 4 cups of water to boil. Add half teaspoon of salt and bring to a boil again.
  2. Add the green peas to the boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes or until the peas are almost cooked. Strain and dunk into cold water immediately to cool.
  3. When they have cooled, strain and transfer to a food processor and make a puree with approx. half cup water. You can either make a smooth puree or leave it a bit chunky like I did.
  4. Next, heat the ghee in a large saucepan.
  5. Add the cumin seeds, cardamom, cinnamon and bay leaves. When the spices release aroma, add the chopped onion.
  6. While the onion is frying, make a paste of the ginger, garlic, green chilli, mint and cilantro. When the onion has browned, add the ginger-garlic paste and fry till the raw smell is gone.
  7. Next add the peas puree and about 1 cup water. You can add more water, as per the desired consistency.
  8. Add salt as per taste, mix well and bring to a boil.
  9. Let it simmer for a minute. Take off the heat and serve immediately.
