This recipe is a simple twist on an Indian classic. Just a few ingredients and you have yourself some serious comfort. It’s flavorful and filling but light enough to eat without end. It has the likes of chili, turmeric and cumin, which promises deliciousness. Enjoy!

Peas: are low in calories (only 81 calories per 100 grams), are packed with phyto-nutrients, minerals and antioxidants, help the body to resist infection, lower cholesterol, are packed with bone and brain-healthy vitamin K, contribute to healthy skin and eyes, are a great source of B-complex vitamins, and help to prevent defects in newborn babies with its folic acid content.


  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 medium tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder


Chop the onions and tomatoes. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, cook the onions seasoned with salt and pepper in the olive oil until translucent, then add the tomatoes. Cook until the tomatoes have broken down and soften.

Add the turmeric, cumin and chili to the saucepan and mix until thoroughly combined.

Add the frozen peas and water and stir and cook for another 8-10 minutes, or until the peas have thawed and cooked until soft.

Serve hot!

Bon Appetit!
