I haven't yet made Koraishutir Kochuri this season. Which means I have to make my peas offering with a peas-y alternative.
Ingredients for Koraishutir/Green Peas Ghugni are:
500 grams shelled peas (frozen or fresh)
2 medium size potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 large red onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon ginger paste
2 medium ripe red tomatoes, chopped
Half teaspoon cumin seed
Half teaspoon garam masala powder
1 teaspoon red chili powder
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
Half teaspoon black pepper powder
1 small stick of cinnamon
2 bay leaves
Half cup fried onions, crushed
2-3 tablespoons mustard oil
In the remaining oil, add the cumin seeds, bay leaves, cloves, cardamom and cinnamon. Immediately add the chopped onions.
On a low heat-medium heat, sauté the onions till they are lightly red in color. Add the ginger, tomatoes, red chili powder, black pepper powder, turmeric, garam masala powder, salt and half a spoon of sugar. Sweat the onions with the spices and tomatoes till they are cooked. Keep it covered. This should take about 6-8 minutes.
Now add the crushed fried onions to the ghugni and mix well. Do a taste check and see if it has the right balance of everything.
