Green Peas Peanut Curry/ Pattani Kadalai Porial

  This dish is dedicated to my friends who are peanut lovers! In this curry I have exclusively used peanuts and  green peas along with relevant spices. Peanuts when cooked as a whole gives a unique texture which is neither hard nor very soft and that could be the main attraction of this dish - and with the spices this dish becomes irresistible. 


1 cup of green peas
1 cup of peanuts
2 large tomatoes
4 cloves crushed garlic
1/4 tsp of turmeric
1/2 tsp of red chilly powder
1 tsp of coriander powder
1 tsp of channa masala
1/2 tbsp of oil 
1/2 tsp of fennel seeds
coriander leaves for garnish
salt as required


1.Soak peanuts for 2 hours and pressure cook peanuts and peas with enough water. 
2.Chop the tomatoes and crush the garlic. Heat oil in the skillet and add fennel seeds. Saute till nice aroma comes, then add tomatoes and crushed garlic. Saute well till the tomatoes become mushy.
3.Now add red chilly powder, coriander powder and salt.Then add the cooked peanuts and green peas and 1/2 cup of water. Close the lid for 10 minutes and allow the gravy to thicken.
4.Add channa masala and coriander leaves to the skillet.
 Serve with rice/ roti.
