Snap Peas Poriyal


Ingredients:
  • Snap Peas – 400 g
  • Onion – 1
  • Oil – 1 Table spoon
  • Mustard seeds – ¼ Tea spoon
  • Split channa dal – ½ Table spoon
  • Red chili powder – ½ Table spoon
  • Grean chilies - 2
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ Tea spoon
  • Crushed garlic cloves - 1 Tea spoon
  • Grated coconut – 2 Table spoon
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Salt – as needed  
Method:
  • Wash and trim a bit on both ends of snap peas.
  • Then cut them into one inch pieces.
  • Chop onion into small pieces.
  • In a pan heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they pop up add split channa dal and fry for few seconds.
  • Add onion, crushed garlic and a pinch of salt. Fry until onion becomes transparent.
  • Add curry leaves, snap peas, green chilies, red chili power and turmeric powder. Toss them well. Adjust the salt and close the lid. Cook until it is done. The content will cook by using water in snap peas. So no need to add additional water for cooking.
  • Add grated coconut and turn off stove.
