Yield / Serves
Semolina, lightly dry roasted- 01 cup
Green Peas- 1/4th Cup
Onion, finely chopped- 01 large
Green chillies, finely chopped-02 nos.
Hot water- 02 cups
For the tempering
Extra Virgin Olive oil- 1 Â½ tbsp.
Mustard Seeds- Â¾ th tsp.
Curry leaves- 01 sprig
Ginger, grated- 01 tsp.
Salt- To taste
For the garnish
Coriander leaves, fresh (Optional)- 2 sprigs
Fresh coconut grated (Optional) - 30 gm.
Boiled peas- Â½ tbsp.
Curry leaves, sautÃ©ed -01 sprig.
Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan add mustard seeds, let them crackle.
Add curry leaves and grated ginger, sautÃ© till the raw aroma of ginger disappears.
Now add finely chopped onion, sautÃ© till translucent, add green chillies, sautÃ© for 02 minutes.
Now add the lightly roasted semolina, add the green peas, sautÃ© for 02 minutes add the hot water.
Add the salt to taste.
Stir, to prevent lump formation.
Now cover it and cook on a very slow fame.
Cook till all the water is absorbed and semolina and green peas are cooked.
Serve hot garnished with Chopped Coriander leaves or grated fresh coconut.
I prefer serving it very hot garnished with boiled peas and curry leaves.
- Always dry roast the semolina and keep it in an air tight container, not only to save time but also to prevent worms.
- To save time you can separately boil green peas in 02 cups of water add salt to it, taste for proper salt add more if required and add this water + Green peas + Salt to the prepared sautéed semolina mixture
