Butter Beans and Green Peas Curry

Butter beans and green peas curry is a protein rich, highly nutritious curry. Butter beans is a nutrient rich food, a powerful anti oxidant and a protein power house. You can make this as a side dish for roti or pulao. I used fresh butter beans and fresh green peas, you can use the dried or the frozen variety too. If using the dried butter beans, make sure you soak it for a few hours before using it.
