Snow Peas Mezhukupuratti or Subzi Recipe

Snow peas mezhukupuratti or subzi( a dry dish made with a single or a combination of vegetables) is what we had with a yellow dal and rice for lunch today. A simple but tasty dish that is quick to make and makes for a delicious side dish with rice or chapatis. With a low cooking time and everyday ingredients in us this is yet another of my quick and easy recipes you would love to make.

Ingredients for Snow Peas Subzi 
Snow peas - 200 gms (cut into small pieces , you may decide to use it whole too)
Garlic (minced) - 1 tsp
Onion - 1 (medium sized chopped finely)
Kashmiri red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tbsp
Water - 1/2 cup

Method for making the snow peas subzi 

1- Take a flat bottomed non-stick pan , add the oil. Now add the finely chopped onions and the minced garlic. Saute till the raw smell of the garlic disappears and the onions turn soft and a golden brown.
2- Add the turmeric powder and kashmiri red chilli powder. Saute till the oil starts to separate indicating that the masala is cooked. Add in the chopped snow peas and mix well.

3- Add 1/2 cup water and cover and cook on low to medium flame till the water completely evaporates and the snow peas are well-cooked. Make sure to open and stir in between to ensure that the snow peas do not get burnt.
4- Open, dry the water completely and stir fry for 3-4 minutes to get a golden brown coating on the snow peas. Take out into a serving bowl. Serve hot with rice/chapatis.
