Star ingredient:Dried green peas
Time:20 minutes(Apart from soaking time)
1 1/2 cups dried green peas
1 carrot grated
1/2 mango peeled and grated
2 tablespoons shredded coconut
2 green chillies
1 dried red chilli

1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds

10-12 curry leaves
Oil to temper
1.Soak the dried green peas for6-8 hours.Drain the water and pressure cook for up to 2 whistles.The peas should cook but not mushy.
2.Heat oil in a kadai and temper with mustard,urad dal,red,green chillies,asafoetida,curry leaves.
3.Add the cooked green peas,salt and mix well.Saute for 5-7 minutes.
4.Add mango and carrot and saute for 2 minutes.Remove from flame
5.Top with shredded coconuts and serve at once.
1.Fresh peas should not be used for this recipe.Dried green peas available in groceries should be used.
2.Serve at once after mixing coconut else the dish will turn soggy.If serving later,mix the vegetable and coconut at the time of serving.
3.I usually do not use ginger for this as the taste will be over powering.
