Peas Butter Masala

Fresh Peas are  found in plenty  as it is spring in Australia!
There was a bag full of fresh peas in the fridge bought from the produce market last week!  Hence I thought of preparing this awesome dish!

Peas are considered to be one of the most nutritious vegetable and low in calories.
Although frozen and canned peas are easier to use, consuming fresh peas whenever possible is a better option as the key vitamins such as
Vitamin C, B1, B2, B3 and B6 will be more in fresh peas than frozen or canned!!
