Peas & Potato Stew#Soupswappers

This stew is a pure comfort food for the soul and it's sure to be a family favorite too. If you do no have fresh peas then frozen too will do which are always there in the freezer.

Serves 4

1 Cup Fresh Green Peas
3 Medium Potato - cubed - I used boiled potatoes
2 Medium Onion - finely chopped
2 Green Chillies - slit and de seeded
1 Teaspoon Ginger Garlic paste - mixed in ¼ cup water
2 Medium Tomatoes - blanched, skinned & chopperized
¼ Cup Tomato Puree
1 Small Vegetable Stock Cube
½ Teaspoon Level Sea Salt or to taste
2 Tablespoon Groundnut Oil or Any Vegetable oil of your choice
For the Dry Spices
1 Teaspoon Red chilly powder
½ Teaspoon Level Cumin powder
1 Teaspoon Heaped Coriander powder
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric powder
1 Tablespoon Chopped Coriander leaves for garnish
1 Teaspoon Sugar

In a pot/kadai add the oil and ginger garlic paste. Cove the pan ( or else it will splutter and dirty the kitchen) on medium low flame let it cook till all the moisture evaporates and it starts to leave oil at the sides. Now add the finely chopped onions and slit green chillies , fry till the onions are translucent and start to change color. Add the tomato puree, chopperized tomatoes and all the dry spices, vegetable stock cube, salt and fry well till oil surfaces. Now add the fresh green peas ( and if you are using raw potatoes then add it) , add ½ cup water, give it a good stir, cover and cook till the peas are cooked. 
Once the peas are cooked add the boiled potatoes , sugar, add sufficient water to make stew gravy, give it good mix. Cover and let is cook for 5 minutes stirring after every 2 minutes. When the oil starts to surface, switch off the flame. 
Garnish it with coriander leaves and serve this fragrant, flavorful and delicious Peas & Potato Stew is ready to enjoy!!
We enjoyed this with Gurasa- A Sudanese Flatbread, this was a perfect combo.
