I made this curry for yesterdays breakfast and served it with ragi poori. It turned out really good. I already have a version of aloo peas curry in this blog, but this is a updated version of it with a very little change. Actually i wanted it as a new post with good pictures. I made it as a jain version. Because it has no onion and no garlic. But still it tasted amazing..
