Green peas kurma

Written by: Shanthi Muthuvel

When i thought of making parotta for dinner, the next thing came into my mind was what side dish i am going to make. When i was looking out my refrigerator, i recollected that i bought fresh green peas from the store a day before. Finally i ended up making green peas kurma for the parotta. Peas are high in fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and lutein.
