Peas Kurma

Chapati or Poori with this peas kurma can truly, legitimately be my every day food either 
as breakfast or lunch or dinner or whatever. The plain, simple Indian flat bread chapati can 
make sense as food with some awesome side dish like this. The peas dunk in rich, deep colored
gravy just shines as a side dish and I loved pairing it up with poori too. There is nothing 
wonderful than the flavor, color and the texture of peas kurma which satisfies all your food 
loving senses to the core.
