Green Peas Chutney

After the first comment on my last post, it was Déjà vu .. remember my first guess post- All answers were right ??

Yeah.. the first comment was Right answer – Sushma and then few comments later Shubha and then Priya too… hit the Bulls Eye !! Yups… it is Green Peas Chutney ! >:D< Loved to see all comments, were quite varied :) Thanks guys!!

Had this chutney in G’s dabba, I loved it – bookmarked it in my mind and nearly after three months thought of preparing it. I cooked it for a dinner as a side dish for parathas and asked The Foodie its main ingredient. What he knows of me, he guessed everything from seeds-peels-remains of vegetable but not as – one of the major vegetable in one of the most famous side-dish in Indian cuisine – Aloo Matar  or Matar Paneer.  8-}

  IMG_3935 You Need:

  • Green Peas: 1 cup
  • Green Chillies: 2-3 medium - minced
  • Mint Leaves: small bunchful – optional
  • Curry Leaves: 4-5 –optional
  • Sugar to taste
  • Ghee - tempering
  • Cumin Seeds - tempering
  • Lemon juice to taste

You Do:

  1. Heat ghee in kadai – add cumin seeds, let it splutter.
  2. Follow with curry leaves, green chillies, once spluttering is done follow all other ingredients.
  3. Cook covered till peas are cooked well.
  4. Cool it and grind to paste.

Chutney is done :)


Mild peas aroma makes this chutney pleasing, can pass off as peas spread or give a thicker one as alight stuffing or serve with parathas.

Sending this to Priya and Richa’s Veggie of the month event. Hope this is accepted as I’m a bit late for this event.
