BATANI AMBAT.. Konkani curry

The green peas in the freezer was awaiting my use for couple of weeks.. i can never use green peas when SH is in town.. he hates the fact that i use em in anything n everything except sambar, rasam n kuzhambu..

The moment SH left for his early morning flight around 4 am just rushed up picked the green peas pkt n started to make this simple n yummy curry (mixie running around 4 am and my neighbor did ask me did u sleep last nite?? )which i had for breakfast for dosa and for lunch with rice n for dinner planning to make some phulkas..

A simple Konkani curry in heavenly coconut milk and red chilli paste makes a perfect side for indian bread as well as for rice. Loved this recipe and i enjoyed it thoroughly...
