The recipe is fairly straightforward. You need peas, red chili powder, dried mango powder, coriander and cumin powder and some salt. You can use either frozen or fresh peas, as long as they’re sweet. If you’re using frozen, make sure to thaw them (or they’ll release water once they hit the heat). You can also adjust the amount of spices that go in, the amounts given below produce a slightly tangy and moderately spicy product.
