It’s also one of the street foods which you can have it in my home town Madurai. You can get it in front of the temples. You can get it in the streets during festival time. Vendors will keep selling it in the streets and will take to all the doorsteps. I love to have it. It’s more nutritious also. I use to cook in my home as a side dish for rice and during navarathiri festival.
Its also one of my entries to MBP- Street Food Contest and i come across this recipe during my visit to Shankari's blog and her original recipe is HERE.
I have sauted the sundal with mustard seeds and broken black gram and curry leaves and added a little turmeric powder which varies slightly from the original one to give an added taste.
Fresh Green Peas / Dry Green Peas / Pachai Pattani – 1 cup
Onion – 1 (finely chopped)
Grated coconut – 4 tbsp
Grated or finely chopped Green Mango – 4 tbsp
Dry Red Chilly / Green chilly – 2 (finely chopped)
Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
Red Chilly Powder – ½ tsp (optional)
Curry Leaves –few
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Broken Black Gram – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Tips: If you are using dry green peas, soak it in a bowl of hot boiling water and place it in a hot pack or a vaccum flask for 1 to 2 hours to use it immediately, instead of soaking it overnight.
Add green peas with enough amount of salt and water in a pressure cooker. Let it to cook until the peas are well boiled. Strain the excess water.
Heat 4 tbsp of oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, broken black gram, curry leaves, chopped chillies and onions and fry a while. Add cooked peas to it and stir fry it. Add turmeric powder and chilly powder to it and fry a while. Before you switch off the stove, Add grated coconut and mango to it and fry a minute and serve it hot.
