Heat enough oil in a kadai, add the whole spices n let them fry...add the finely chopped onions n chopped tomatoes n stir them until they turns transculent n mushy... add the green peas now n stir them for a while, meanwhile grind fennel seeds, garlic cloves n grated coconut into fine paste....once the green peas get bit cooked add  the grounded paste n stir for a while..
