Pea medley curry

This delightful pea medley curry is a vibrant and flavorful dish that is perfect for a cozy dinner. It's packed with fresh peas and aromatic spices, making it a healthy and satisfying meal for four people.


  • 2 cups of fresh or frozen peas
  • 1 cup of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon of red chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. If using fresh peas, shell them. If using frozen peas, rinse them under cold water to thaw. Chop the tomatoes, finely chop the onion, mince the garlic, and grate the ginger.
  2. In a large pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Allow them to sizzle for about 30 seconds until fragrant.
  3. Add the chopped onions to the pan and sauté until golden brown. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, and cook for another minute.
  4. Stir in the turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala, and red chili powder. Cook the spices for a minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes to the pan and cook until they soften and blend with the spices, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Stir in the peas and mix well to coat them with the spice mixture.
  7. Pour in the coconut milk and stir to combine. Bring the curry to a gentle simmer, then reduce the heat and let it cook for about 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  8. Season the curry with salt to taste. Garnish with fresh cilantro before serving.

Serve this delectable pea medley curry with steamed rice or warm naan bread for a complete meal. The combination of sweet peas and rich, creamy coconut milk, enhanced by aromatic spices, makes this dish a favorite for all ages. Enjoy!
