How to make Green Peas Chutney
To make Green Peas Chutney, if fresh peas is available , we should immerse it in boiling water for 5 minutes. In case of frozen peas, as these peas are already par boiled, we do not need to keep it in boiling water for long. We can soak it in warm water for 2 minutes. This will make the peas soft and its test will also be good. Now finely chop coriander, garlic and green chilies and put all these in a jar of a mixer.
Drain the water from peas and put it in the jar as well. Add salt and black salt to it. Black salt here is on your choice, if you want the earthy flavor of black salt, please go ahead or you can leave it as well. Black salt gives a nice earthy smell to the green peas chutney, which increases its taste even more.
