Ginger - 1 inch, grated
Tomato - 1, grated
Turmeric - a pinch
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp

Aamchur / Dried Mango Powder - 1/2 tsp
Heat oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds and hing. Once they start sizzling, add the grated ginger and tomato. Add the rest of the spices. Mix well.
Sprinkle water in between if required so that the spices do not stick to the bottom of the pan. Cook on low flame till oil leaves the spices.
Add the green peas and salt. Cook till the liquid almost evaporates and the peas are tender. Sprinkle aamchur powder. Mix well with the peas. Remove from heat and serve as a side with steamed brown rice.
