Green Peas Ambat Recipe

An Ambat is a preparation where finely chopped onions are used in the seasoning. I have posted quite a few recipes using various vegetables and today it is with fresh peas. This preparation goes well with Rice or Roti.

Ingredients :

250 gms shelled peas

One potato finely chopped

3 medium sized onions finely chopped

1/4 of a large coconut grated

4 ladlesful of cooked Arhar Dal churned well

9 Byadgi chillies roasted in a little oil

1 level tbsp tamarind paste


3 tbsps Coconut oil or oil of choice


Heat two glasses of water in a pan. Tip in the peas, potato and one of the finely chopped onions along with salt and cook till done. Grind the coconut, roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste and drop it into the peas, Potato and Onion mixture along with the Dal. Adjust salt and boil it thoroughly. Heat oil in a pan. Drop in the remaining onions and roast to a dark brown. Season the boiling Ambat and continue boiling for a minute. Switch off. Cover and keep aside for about fifteen minutes to allow the flavours to infuse before serving.
