I was very excited to get these snap peas and couple of pods of green peas from my garden. Just made a simple stir fry dish out of it.
2 cups chopped snap peas,
1/2 onion, chopped ,
1 tomato, chopped,
1/2 tsp cumin seeds,
pinch of sugar,
1 tsp salt,
1 tbsp oil,
2 tbsp grated coconut,
1/2 tsp turmeric powder,
1/2 tsp garam masala (optional),
2 tbsp green peas.
- Heat oil in a pan on medium heat and add cumin seeds. Then add the chopped onion and fry till onion is cooked, then add the tomato and fry again for few minutes.
- Next add the chopped snap peas and green peas, stir again.
- Finally add the salt, sugar, turmeric powder, garam masala and the coconut.
- Mix well and add few tbsp of water and cover the pan with a lid. Reduce the heat to very low and allow the vegetables to cook till tender.
You can just stir fry and keep the snap peas crunchy if you like or cook till very soft and tender.
