Kovalam Matar is a semi-dry and semi-spicy subzi of green peas and tomatoes cooked with spice powders and a cashew paste.

It is quite easy and quick to prepare and makes use of everyday ingredients, yet it has a rich and exotic feel because of the cashew-coconut paste and the juiciness of green peas.

A garnish of coriander gives a fresh burst of flavour to this green peas subzi making it a delight to savour.

Love green peas, then also do try other variations like Green Peas and Mint Soup , Green Peas Kheer , Green Peas Pancake , Green Peas Waffles and Green Peas Sandwich .

Great way to have a green peas subzi with a South Indian paste. The paste of coconut and cashew-nuts combine well to make a nice non spicy vegetable.
