Vatane Ambat(fresh green pea curry)


Vallo Vatano in konkani means fresh green peas in english.This is one dish which I prepare when it is green peas season.Other than making north indian curries like mutter panner,Aloo mutter,mutter paranthas, green peas pulav etc ,this is a konkani dish which I would prefer during this season.The nutty flavour of coconut paste and the crunchy , a kind of sweet bite of green peas make this dish a nice alternative to above mentioned north indian dishes.

2 cups of fresh green peas boiled with a pinch of turmeric,
1 cup of scraped coconut.
3 fried byadgi red chillies,
An inch of tamarind.
Salt to taste
For seasoning,
1 finely chopped medium sized onion,
1 tablespoon of cooking oil.

Step1: Grind together scraped coconut,red chilles and tamarind to make a fine paste.
Step2: Take a round bottom vessel, add the green peas and the ground paste.Add some water if the mixture is too thick.Add salt to taste. Boil this for around 15 minutes.Keep stirring from time to time so that it doesnot burn.
Step3: Meanwhile heat a seasoning pan, add cooking oil,chopped onions. Fry until golden brown.
Step4:Add the seasoning to the boiling green peas curry or Vatane Ambat.Switch off the heat .

Serve hot with rice and lonche.
