Cilantro Peas

Here's something I make very often - its easy and tasty and is great as a quick fix vegetable for any meal.

Grind together about 2 cups of cilantro leaves, 2-3 green chillies and 2 tsp of cumin seeds. Saute the ground mixture with a little asafetida. When the fresh smell disappears, add 2 cups of cooked peas and mix with the curry, so that the peas are coated.

This also works with mushrooms, potatoes and paneer. But I enjoy the peas the most.

We have more in common than we think... I made this a week ago... added a bit of coconut milk in the chutney though... came out lovely.
