CARROT AND PEAS CURRY

After a long vacation back home it was again time to get back into the kitchen! Still in the holiday mood, so to start with I made a simple curry to go with chappatis.

This is what you’ll need

Carrots: 3

Peas: 1 cup (I used frozen)

Onion: 1

Cumin seeds: 1tsp

Chilli powder: 1tsp

Turmeric powder: 1/4tsp

Kitchen king masala: 1tsp (you can also use garam masala)

Ginger: 1/4″ piece (grated)

Water: 1 cup

Oil: 1tsp

Salt to taste

Let’s get cooking

1. Peel the carrots and onion. Chop into one inch sized cubes.

2. Heat the oil in a pan and season with cumin seeds.

3. Add the onions and grated ginger. Saute until the onions are transparent.

4. Add the chilli powder, turmeric powder and fry for another 2 minutes.

5. Add the chopped carrots, along with one cup of water. Cover and cook until the carrots are almost done.

6. Add the peas, kitchen king masala and salt. Cover and cook again for another 5 to 7 minutes.

7. Cook until almost dry. Serve hot with chappatis. ( you can leave a little bit of gravy if you prefer)

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves: 3-4

Dieticians Note

Carrots and peas ate both low in fat, but are rich in vitamins and minerals.

Peas are rich in protein and carrots are rich in Vitamin A.  

High fibre content in both the vegetables, make them a good choice for those on weight reducing diets.

They are also rich in anti oxidants, which protect against cardio vascular diseases.
