Green Peas Gravy – fresh – hand picked peas – yummy side dish

Green pea is a vegetable that is enjoyed by everyone. It also takes very less time to cook. Any recipe prepared using green peas is a hit in most households. I mostly use the frozen green peas but this time I was able to get fresh green peas. Since it is summer we got a chance to go vegetable picking in the farm where I picked fresh green peas, used in this recipe. I spent quite a bit of time and effort in picking the peas and it is worth it because the dish came out well. The taste of the fresh peas was extremely good when compared to the store bought frozen peas.
