Peas curry with coconut recipe, Green peas curry, How to make matar curry

Peas curry is an delicious side dish with rich flavors as it is made by using ground coconut and cilantro paste. This is the side dish my mom always prepares when she makes poori as we prefer this over regular potato masala. I still remember when poori with peas curry used to be our Sunday breakfast when I was a kid and we would eat it only while watching top 10 movies in sun tv. Those are golden childhood days. So without much dragging lets get to the recipe.
