Nimona : Banarsi Style Mashed Green Peas Curry
Nimona is a Banarsi style of making green peas curry. Simple and elegant, this one is a star of the table!
- 1 and 1/2 cups green peas fresh shelled
- 1 and 1/2 inchs ginger piece
- 2 green chillies
- 1 tsp jeera powder
- 1 tsp jeera
- 1 tsp black pepper powder
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tbsp ghee
- 1 cup water warm
- to taste salt
Grind ginger, green chillies and peas coarsely using as little water as possible. I like to keep a handful of peas un-grinded to add the texture.
Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan, add hing and fry for 30 secs.
Add the jeera seeds and fry till golden brown. Add bay leaf and fry for another 30 secs.
Now add the ground peas and dry spices and roast for 5 mins on low flame.
Add the warm water and let it boil for 3-4 minutes and its done.
Serve with hot rotis. It taste equally yummy with rice.
