Brinjal & Green Peas Curry

Its a peek season here for fresh green peas and i couldnt stop myself to get them from my nearby farmer's market, after making some pulao with those fresh green peas,there were some leftover sitting silently in my fridge since two days..While going through my fridge, i got few brinjals and immediately i wanted to make some curry by combining brinjals and green peas together and used some leftover spice powder which i prepared while making Okra Sukka to spice up this easy breezy curry..This simple and quick curry tastes fabulous when served along with curd rice, both together turned out our yesterday's lunch super prefect and yummy...

Brinjal & Greenpeas Curry

1/2kg Brinjals (chopped)
1cup Fresh green peas
1no Onion (large & chopped)
1no Tomato (large & chopped)
5nos Garlic cloves (crushed)

1tsp Sukka Spice powder

  5. I just prolonged my idea of trying that okra sukka since I didn't had coriander seeds.So,the spice powder is going to be truly useful.Brinjal and peas combo,I didn't try yet.
