Story
It is generally prepared for evening snack or for breakfast during winters. But I am too impatient to wait for winters or summers to have something I crave for. of course, if you make it with seasonal fresh peas the taste is magical. But frozen ones also does a good job. There are two basic methods of making it, one I have narrated in detail here and the other is made by stir frying them covered in a wok. The taste of garlic does a great job to enhance the flavor of this delicious preparation.
