 Winter is here and we can see loads of green peas in most of the vegetable shops. Yes you heard me right J…we are experiencing a tinge of winter in Chennai too. Anyway with so much of peas everywhere, it was time to cook a new dish and I had bookmarked this from Cubes and Juliennes and tweaked it to suit my taste.
