Green Peas Egg Curry

Green Peas Egg Curry

A Simple and breezy curry for appam or chapatis. Both egg and green peas forms an awesome combo.This is a typical Kerala style curry which is a good side dish for appam. It is a flavorful, mild, creamy and tangy sauce with coconut milk and tomato puree. Usually it is made with dried green peas which you have to soak overnight. But here I have used frozen ones.

Frozen green peas- 1 1/2 cup
Hard boiled eggs- 3
Onion- 1 medium
Tomato puree- 1/2 cup
Ginger garlic paste- 11/2 tsp
Coconut milk thick-3/4 cup
Chilly powder- 1 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tsp
Garam masala- 1/2 tsp
Meat masala- 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves

Heat oil in a pan and saute onions till golden brown. Add ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder and saute for a minute. Add  tomato puree(  you can add chopped tomatoes too) and salt and saute till oil separates. Add frozen green peas, chilly powder,coriander powder and  masala. Close lid and allow to cook. Add coconut milk and boiled eggs and allow to simmer. Finally add chopped coriander leaves. Serve warm with appam/ parottas or pathiri.

Try this..
Hope you will all enjoy

  37. Hi, I read ur recipe, looks yum and easy to cook.
    I have a question, will this taste like the one served in the hotels in Kerala? I have never tasted this before, but my husband likes that peas and egg curry with appam. Just curious to know and make it sure whether this is that one. Please reply.. Thank U! Nasifa

  38. Hi Nasifa,thanks for stopping by and so glad that you liked this recipe..This is a simple home style recipe which my mom taught me and it is delicious and perfect with appam.

    In hotels I think they use dry peas and soak it over night. This one I tried with frozen peas.

    There is also one more recipe which my mom makes with frozen peas and egg. If you have left over chicken curry gravy you can add a little of that too,all the rest is the same as the recipe above. It also tastes very yummy....if you like try that too some other time..

    Pls try the recipe,hope you will like it.
    Have a nice day :)

    1. Hi Suja,
      Thank u so much for ur reply. I will try this recipe tonight, God willing.

      Thank u once again,
      May God bless you!

Spicy Kerala Chicken Roast is another nadan recipe and a family favorite. It is a dry version and is great accompaniment with rice, chapathi or fried rice.The chicken in this recipe is usually deep fried or shallow fried, (some times whole stuffed chicken ) and then coated with the masala.

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry

Meat Ball Curry/Kofta Curry
Today's recipe is a delicious meat ball/ kofta curry which goes well with rice, pulao or naan. If you want to try something different for dinner try this kofta curry. This is a great dish to serve when you have friends over for dinner. Kofta curry is definitely worth a try-juicy and tender meat balls are cooked in a  rich tangy mildly spiced tomato based gravy enriched with aromatic spices.

The first time I tried the kofta curry was in Delhi and it was creamy  rich curry with lots of fresh cream and the meat balls were cooked over charcoal for a smoky flavor. So if you want that authentic flavor try barbecuing the meatballs before adding to the gravy. I wanted to try my own version of kofta curry and added cashew nut paste instead of cream and my family enjoyed for dinner with vegetable pulao and naan .For a richer, creamier texture you can also add cream. You can use minced mutton of beef or even try a vegetarian version of this curry with mashed pota…
