Green Peas Curry in a clay pot with NO Cashews

Green Peas are healthy, versatile and taste great.  Since they contain vitamin K, manganese, vitamin C, fiber, thiamin, vitamin A, and folate, green peas offer a remarkable nutrition benefit. They are also said to be great for your skin. A fistful of green peas daily is said to keep wrinkles and fine lines away. 

As Sri Lankans, we used to cook green peas with cashews and it’s just the 2nd main ingredient. The recipe that we are going to show is making a curry only using green peas as the main ingredient. This is very easy to make and delicious as well.
