Green Peas Subzi (Mutter Subzi)

Share this Recipe:

This subzi mainly made from green peas, onions and tomatoes. So when you don’t have other vegetables in your refrigerator and you have frozen peas. Then you can make this delicious subzi. This subzi is sour in taste because we are adding tomato puree, chopped tomatoes and dried mango powder. But still it taste great with roti or paratha. Green peas subzi is semi-dry subzi.


Enjoy, everyone!
