பட்டாணி குருமா / Peas Korma(Kurma) / Peas cooked in a Spicy Cashew Sauce - Curry in a Hurry


One lazy night my sister told my mother "Amma I am hungry", Guess what my mother told "Go and Ask your sister, she will make something for you". I was busy editing my blog, But when my sister asked me, how could I regret that. So I stopped everything and just entered the kitchen.  I opened up the refrigerator and was searching to find some vegetables, but for my luck there is not even a single beans left. I also searched our potato basket,but there was only some onions left. My final hope is our freezer, I opened it and found a small unopened bag of frozen peas. I got a confidence that I can make something like a curry to go with poori( I had some left over poori dough from the previous night). Now I am off to the spice cupboard and was checking what else I can get to put in the curry. Luckily I found a bag of roasted cashews which my mother bought some weeks back and I took some and saved it for my cooking. Now I got the clear picture of what I am going to make, it is a creamy & spicy peas korma with some poori. How good is that..
 


Many people think that making korma takes hours, if so correct that. This one takes only 15 mins to make, Hence I am calling it as Curry in a Hurry. But the flavours are so good and everyone licked their fingers. Combining cashews and onions along with the sweet peas was a total hit and everyone loved it..You can add any vegetables in this gravy like paneer, potatoes, carrots and even chicken.

I hope you will give this a try and tell me how it turned out.

Ingrediants:

Peas - 2 cups ( I used frozen)

For Masala:
Oil- 1 tblspn
Fennel Seeds / Sombu / Saunf- 1 tblspn
Cashews - 10
Onion - 1 chopped
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder / Malli podi - 1 tblspn
Turmeric powder / Manjal podi - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1 tsp

Method:

Heat oil in a pan. Add fennel seeds and cashews and let them fry for a min.

Add in onions and cook them for a min till they turn transparent.

Add in the spice powders, salt and sugar and mix well.

Take this in a blender and make into a fine puree by adding some water.

Now take peas in a kadai add enough water and bring it to a boil. Cook it for 5 mins till the peas are cooked. I used frozen so they cooked faster.

Now add in the ground masala and mix well.Cook for 5 mins.

Serve with poori or roti.
