Greenpeas & Jackfruit Seeds Kurma

Love kurma with green peas, everytime i used to prepare kurma with potatoes and green peas combination,this time i tried out this wonderful looking kurma with jackfruit seeds which i picked recently from Indian groceries and skipped completely potatoes in this kurma..For my surprise,this combination works out absolutely wonderful and we just enjoyed having this super flavourful kurma with rice and papads for our lunch and served again this kurma with rotis for our dinner..Sending this fingerlicking kurma to my own event CWS-Peas..



1/2cup Dry green peas
15nos Jackfruit seeds (cooked)
1no Onion (chopped)
1no Tomato (chopped)
3nos Green Chillies (slit opened)
1/2tsp Garam masala powder
1tbsp Coriander powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
2nos Bayleaves
1tsp Ginger garlic paste
2tbsp Coriander leaves (chopped)
Salt
Oil

To Grind:
1tsp Peppercorns
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Fennel seeds
1/4cup Grated coconut
1tbsp Poppy seeds

Soak the dry green peas overnite and cook in hot water with salt until they get half cooked, drain the excess of water and keep aside...Meanwhile grind all the ingredients from the list 'to grind' as fine paste and keep aside...

Heat enough oil in a kadai, add the bay leaves and fry until they turns brown, add immediately the chopped onions, chopped tomatoes,slit opened green chillies, ginger-garlic paste and saute everything well until the raw smells goes away...add now the half cooked green peas,jackfruit seeds,turmeric powder and add the grounded paste to the kadai, cook everything in simmer for few minutes with coriander powder,garam masala powder with lid closed...finally add enough water to the kadai and cook in medium flame for few minutes..once the veggies gets well cooked,put off the stove and add the coriander leaves..

Serve hot as rotis & rice..
