Green Peas Poriyal

Green peas are a wonderful source of nutrition. They are rich in protein and vitamins and that's why it is also one of the first foods given to babies. Apparently, 1/2 cup of cooked green peas has 4 times more protein than carrots! So green peas are a wonderful source of protein for vegetarians. They have a low glycemic index and green peas are rich in fiber too. There are many ways to cook the green peas, this kind of poriyal is a South Indian speciality and it goes very well with sambar or rasam rice.

1. I prefer using the pressure cooker as the peas get cooked fast and it's cooked soft but you can use an open pan too.
