Mutter ka Nimona (Potato cooked in Peas curry)

It was a cloudy day... Kids were playing.... We planned to go out for lunch.. But, then it started raining.... Taking Kids out was a big risk.... Do not want them to get wet.... 

When I was small, about 7-8 yrs old, I use to wait for rainy season.... And never use to miss 1st rain of the season, getting wet, or I should soaked in rain was my favorite game.... but, then it leads to cold, sneezing, running nose, fever... And then, me in bed for couple of days.... The story was same for almost every year.... I do not want, my kiddo doing same.... Well, she is also like me... It runs in our blood.... She loves to get wet in rain...

So, not to make kids exposed to rain, Bhabhi (sis-in-law) decided to cook lunch at home... And I am glad that she made it.... It was definitely too yummy....

Delicious and yummy way to have veggies of your meal... Do you know, Peas are lots of health benefits... It provides us protein, fiber, anti oxidants, Vitamin C and Vitamin E.... And hence, regular intake of peas helps in weight management, strong immune system, regulates blood sugar....
