Capsicum Peas Masala

Capsicum Peas Masala is one of my favorite dishes I opt for rotis. Today I felt so excited and happy and started preparing this for my dinner, and it turned out really well. I should admit that the mental happiness reflects in cooking. :) And here is my favorite recipe.

Green Peas - 1 cup
Capsicum - 1 cup (red, green and yellow capsicum- chopped)
Oil- 2 Tbsp
Onion- 1
Tomato- 1
ginger garlic paste - 1 Tbsp
Green chilly- 2
Coriander powder- 1 Tb sp
Red Chilly powder- 1/2 Tbsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Fresh cream- 4 Tbsp

For Seasoning:
Cumin seeds
Bay leaf

  1. Boil green peas in a separate sauce pan before starting with the recipe.
  2. In a pan, fry the ingredients mentioned for seasoning and then add finely chopped onions and green chilly.
  3. Once the onions become translucent, add ginger garlic paste and fry well. 
  4. To this add coriander powder, chilly powder and little garam masala and fry well until oil separates. 
  5. Add finely chopped capsicum to this and fry for 3-4 mins.
  6. Once the raw smell of capsicum goes off, add chopped tomatoes and salt and cook well. 
  7. When the curry gets cooked, add boiled peas to the curry, mix well and add one cup of water and allow it to boil for 5 mins. 
  8. Finally add fresh cream to the curry, mix well and cook for 3 more mins and remove from fire.
  9. Capsicum peas masala ready. This goes very well with roti and naan.


* You can add cashew nuts paste instead of fresh cream, to give gravy consistency.
* Do not cook for long time after adding cream. If you add cashew nut paste, add it to the curry before adding peas and fry well.
