Snap Peas ( Mezhukkupuratti ) Stir Fry With Chili Flakes and Garlic


With media all over the world bustling with different views about the largest coup of our times, I guess my head is overcrowded with the overflow of too much information than I could handle. Can i blame myself? Who doesn't have the curiosity to know everything?

The weather has been so good here with brisk dry air and blue cloudless sky , except yesterday with the drizzling and a shade of gloom.  I am really making use of all the sun , thawing myself from the deep frost that the season gone by left on me , basking sunshine in my balcony with some interesting reads and lots of pink lemonade. The routine morning walks with friends is keeping my body fit and giving a refreshing start every day. How are you making use of the good weather?


Hilarious stage shows, hiking trips , exploring spring bounty in farmers market.... filled my last weekend and I am so looking forward to all the weekends to come , to have lots of trips and loads of fun :)....

Have you heard of Sugar Snap peas? Me..nope , until i saw this in a farm market last weekend. We love trying new seasonal vegetables , since it resembles snow peas , we oughta give it a try and brought home , along with lots n lots n fresh broccoli , asparagus and farm fresh eggs.

I made a stir fry with the sugar snap peas , adding chili flakes and garlic and turned out to be real good with a lil natural sweetness of the peas and heat of chili..

Recipe for ( Sugar) Snap peas stir fry with chili flakes and garlic.
Ingredients:-
Snap peas - 12 oz
Small onion chopped - 1/4 cup
Garlic crushed - 2-3 cloves
Red chili flakes - 1/2 tea spoon
Salt to taste
Musatrd seeds
curry leaves (optional)
Oil ( i used olive oil)

Trim the ends and cut the snap peas diagonal medium pieces. Boil in a cooking pot by adding water( one cup is good.add more if needed) and salt . Cook till it is tender and water is absorbed.
Heat oil in a pan , add mustard seeds .When they pop up add chopped onions and saute for 5 minutes 
and then add curry leaves and garlic and fry for a couple of minutes.
Add cooked snap peas and mix well. Sprinkle red pepper flakes and saute for another 6-7 minutes or till it is dry and browned. Serve warm..

I love your photos! This sounds great. Yes we love sugar snap peas. My husband's aunt has a "U-Pick" farm in Michigan. She has raspberries, blueberries, and sugar snap peas and many other crops. We were able to visit one summer when my daughter was six, we have a photo of her standing in the field picking peas and eating them. Nothing better than farm fresh!
