Pattani kuruma - Green Peas kuruma

I do this kuruma in many ways. One method which I do commonly is here. This method can be done with other varieties of peas like kidney beans, white beans, etc..


  • Green Peas-1 cup
  • Onion- 1
  • Grated coconut-1 1/2 tablespoon
  • Cumin seeds-1/2 teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder-1/4 teaspoon
  • Chilli powder-1/2 teaspoon
  • Coriander powder-1/2 teaspoon
  • Cinnamon- a small piece
  • Cloves-2
  • Oil-3 teaspoon
  • Salt


  • Wash the green peas and cook it with enough water seperately.
  • Grind onion, grated coconut and cumin seeds into fine paste.
  • Heat oil in pan and add the cinnamon and cloves.
  • Add the paste and fry it for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder, coriander powder and salt to the paste.
  • Add little water and then allow it to cook well with the lid closed.
  • When the masala is ready, add the cooked peas to it and allow it to boil for 2 minutes.
  • A perfect side dish for all kind of rices and chappathi.

Tip: Add 1 tomato if desired, which gives a different taste.
