Green Peas Pickle


Though to try this way of making pickle out of peas :), and it turn out really nice. Hope you pickle lovers there will enjoy it. i jsut know that Supriya and Sra love differet kind of pickles, so atleast forthem it will do good , right Supriya and Sra? :) . Well, Hubby is in your line, so I try making different variety of Pickles at home a lot. This was tasting nice will good aroma of fennel seeds spreaded in the whole dish. Here is the way I make it, simple and easy.

Ingredients:
½ cup peas
4-5 green chillies
2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tsp fennel seeds(saunf) – roasted,
1 tsp salt
½ tsp turmeric
4 tsp oil
2 tsp lemon juice
½ tsp red chilli powder

Method:
In a grinder grind mustard seeds and fennel seeds to a smooth powder.
Cut green chillies in to 1 inch long pieces.
In a pan heat the oil, and turn off the heat when oil is hot.
In this hot oil add green chillies and green peas, then add powder of mustard seeds and fennel seeds along with red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt.
Add lemon juice when the mixture is cold. Store it in a air tight container. This pickle can be eaten after two days.

USHA said...

Hey pooja,,peas pickle!!!!you have come up with something really very different.


Valentine's day special as ashaji said,one would be beetroot orelse as per your idea strawberry is also good idea.

It is just my suggestion, don't restict it to cooking items, it can also be any handcraft etc which should have heart symbol or pink colour(similar as Republic event).

Peas pickle....Haven't seen or heard abt it anywhere. Really innovative.

Pooja said...

Dear All,
thanks for your nice suggestions and good words here.
I just posted theme for the next week. It was really nice to get your suggestions here, got some emails too ,about theme of next week. thanks for that too.
Having something perfect red is bit difficult as already Asha said, I made theme little versatile , as beet root here is getting little tough as the coldness decreases here a lot in a day .
Hope you wll will like the theme, i just posted , let me know your views.
thanks
-Pooja
