Green peas kurma

Green peas kurma with step by step pictures.

Green peas kurma is an excellent side dish for appam/ chapati or idiyappam. The addition of the ground coconut masala paste in the gravy enriches the flavor and taste of this kurma. So please don't skip adding it. This kurma can also be made with fresh green peas. Here I have used dried version hence we need to soak and boil the peas.
