This curry when I was making it, was not sure of the taste but once it was ready it was really good in taste. Green peas and potatoes are always at home so I make this often and eat it with roti.

was very reluctant to try this recipe. But it turned out really nice. The green pea paste gives a different taste. i enjoyed it with rice..
