PEA NUTS IN MASALA GRAVY

So long days over, nearly a month!..I have taken and stayed away from my blogging and missing all my sweet buddies cool recipes in this hot summer. Busy in settling the things in our new house even though it’s very next to my old house, had lot more things to do. Atlast I got settled in my new home and got one more interesting hobby made me busy next to blogging. That’s gardening. Yuppie!!!!... I got more space in this house and me n my daughter who is much interested gardening, started planting some seeds n plants of flowers, vegetables etc in our new garden.

Ok ok let’s come to the topic. This gravy I suddenly prepared for my dinner on the second day of my shifting, where there is no veg in my fridge. My hubby dear wanted to have Masala Pea Nuts that eve for snacks. So I soaked them in the noon for eve snacks then changed the plan of preparing snacks to side dish for my Roti. It came out well and we both liked it. U too Give a try and let me know dears….


INGREDIENTS

Boiled pea nuts – 1 cup
Tomato medium -2
Onion big -1
Green chilli 3
Red chilli powder 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Turmeric a pinch
Garam masala 1 tsp
Garlic pods 3
Ginger ½ inch

METHOD

Soak the raw pea nuts for 5 to 6 hrs or even over night. Pressure Cook them with half salt. Keep aside. Grind half onion, one tomato, ginger, garlic, chilli to make a thick paste. Chop remaining half onion, tomato in length wise. Take a pan. Pop up jeera/ani seed/mustard then add onion and tomato, saute them well. Add turmeric, salt, red chilli powder and garam masala. Add the ground masala paste. After couple of mts add cooked pea nuts. Sauté until the oil leaves. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

Goes well with Rottis/stuffed chappati/parathas.

Ahh! So soaking the peanuts overnight makes it amenable to boiling! I always have tried to pressure cook them and then wondered why they were still crunchy! Nice idea.
