Peas Masala

Peas Masala is a winning combination of Tomatoes, Potatoes & Peas. Having the luscious Red of tangy tomatoes and flavored mildly with cinnamon and cloves , enriched with the complex carbs from the potatoes, the peas lend their vibrant color and texture , this dish is certain to warm the cockles of your heart tummy !


Peas - 1 cup
Tomatoes- 1/2 Kg
Potatoes - 1/4 kg
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1 ''
Cloves - 2
Chilly powder - 1 tsp
Jaggery / sugar - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste


Blanch the Tomatoes , puree and pass the juice through a sieve.
Pressure cook the potato, remove the jackets, and crush it roughly with your hands.
Cook the peas .
Powder finely the Cinnamon & cloves.

Heat ghee in a pan, put off the fire & add stir in the cinnamon & clove powder . I take this precaution , to keep the powder from charring.
Switch on the gas again and pour in the Tomato puree, toss in the peas and bring it a boil.
Add the prepared potatoes , chilly Powder , salt and sugar.
Add water to adjust consistency and bring it to a simmer .
Flavorful Peas masala is all ready for you to devour.
