Green peas in cream curry

       Green peas are available in India normally during winters and I remember as a child, my mum would sit us down around a huge pile and we would shell them and the nice soft tender sweet ones found themselves into our tummies.Now with super markets, we get frozen too and so they find place in our everyday menu too.Here in Germany, I find the peas absolutely sweet and so tender that you can actually eat the frozen ones without cooking.The dish is ready within a few minutes.I tried this for the first time and I found this recipe absolutely delicious. Would go very well with toast and soup too besides as a side dish with rotis and parathas.
