Snap Pea Pods Masala June 1, 2007

Posted by live2cook in Sauces and Gravies.

It has always been my habit on busy days to look for vegetables that cook in short time and would not need much preparation time. For this Cabbage, Snake Gourd, Carrots, Snap Pea pods etc., suit well. Vegetables with quick cook nature help us on busy days with tasty and healthy gourmet dishes. Most of all, help us avoid eating out.

Snap pea pod masala is one such busy day recipe that I would like to share in this post.

Here’s What I did:

Took 1 cup of Mung dal in a sauce pan and added 2 cups of water. Boiled the dal until it turned soft. Added Chopped snap pea pods to the cooking dal. Boiled until pea pods were soft and dal turned mushy. Kept aside.

In a blender, took 1/2 cup of chopped onions, 1/2 cup of chopped tomato, 1/4 cup cilantro,1/4 cup of shredded coconut, 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 1/4 teaspoon each of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg powder, 3-4 green chillies. Blend them to a smooth paste with the help of 1/4 cup water.

In a pan heated 1/2 teaspoon of oil and added mustard seeds. When they spluttered, added the ground mixture. Cooked until the mixture lost almost all the liqid and oil seperated to the top. Added the boiled dal and snap pea pods and mixed well. Added 1 teaspoon of salt and boiled till the gravy thickened.
