Koraishutir Ghugni (Green Peas Curry)


Any preparation with green peas or ‘koraishuti’ is loved by all in our family. ‘Koraishutir Ghugni’ is cooked now and then at our place. I prefer to cook it in pressure cooker, you may cook in pan or kadai too. The sweet gems are much loved when I serve with bread for breakfast during winter. I’m sure you all going to love it too.
