Onion Peas Masala


          Green Peas is something that I always have in my freezer, it comes in handy when I have to make something in a hurry, especially in the mornings when packing lunch for my daughter. It cooks faster and most kids love green peas. Today's post is Onion Peas Masala, also an easy dish, needs very few ingredients but tastes really good, caramelized onions with green peas. I have already posted Tomato Onion Masala, which might look similar to this, but then the spices added are different, so the taste also differs. This goes well with rotis or even as a filling for your sandwiches, if you like onions and peas, then this is for you..

Need To Have

  • Sliced Onions - 3 cups
  • Frozen Or Fresh Green Peas - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Red Chilly Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Roasted Cumin Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt - to taste

Roasted Cumin Powder - roast cumin seeds and then powder it 

Method


          Heat some oil, add the onions and saute for 2 minutes. When it starts turning pink, add the salt, chilly powder and the sugar and keep sauteing it, till it starts turning brown and looks caramelized.


          Meanwhile, cook the green peas in the microwave or stove top, drain any excess water and keep. Once the onions have turned light brown, add the cooked peas and roasted cumin powder, mix well and keep cooking for another 2 or 3 minutes, remove and serve.


Note
You can leave out the chilly powder entirely, still the dish will taste good with a sweetish taste of caramelized onions.
While cooking the peas, add a little salt to it.
