   Few days ago when i saw the Fresh green peas in the nearby Indian Grocery store, i picked up a small packet and though we always frozen peas nothing can equal the taste of this fresh green peas. I wanted to make this  green peas curry which my mom’s friend makes for us when we were kids. This is a wonderful combo for Garlic Rasam and hot rice.
