Green peas masala

Green peas masala was always our childhood favourite dish which Papa used to get it from the Woodlands restaurant every Saturdays and Amma used to prepare her superhit vegetable Pulav.Yes that used to be the Saturday tradition.Recently while browsing few blogs I found similar green peas masala in Jeyashri's blog and I thought of trying it.The dish came out to be truly good,very near to the restaurant style.I prepared Puri as a combo for the breakfast and chapathi for the lunch.
