Ingredients
  Frozen peas 16 Ounce
  Cream cheese 8 Ounce
  Curry powder 1 Teaspoon
  Cumin powder 1 Teaspoon
  Coriander powder 1 Teaspoon
  Turmeric powder 1 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon (or to taste)
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Rinse and drain the peas under warm water to remove any ice.

MAKING
2. Add olive oil and butter into a frying pan and heat on medium-high.
3. Add the spices and cook for about 30 seconds to release the flavors.
4. Add peas and sauté for another minute then add the cream cheese.
5. Saute until the cream cheese is melted and well blended with the peas and spices. This should take no more than 5 minutes. The peas should be soft and mushy.

SERVING
6. You are ready to serve and eat! Use this as a topping for baked potatoes or serve with corn chips as a dip.

NOTE
To make a baked potato just wash and dry some potatoes and preheat your oven to 375°F
Cut a few slits into the top of the potatoes, this will allow steam to escape during baking.
Place the potatoes on a baking pan or cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour.
If you choose to bake the potatoes in a microwave then cut a thin wedge lengthwise out of the top of the potato. This is to release steam during baking and to keep the potato from exploding in the microwave.
The baking time and settings will vary according to your microwave. It should be around 8 or 9 minutes on high.
