Carrot and peas gravy

All that feasting and craving, over sweets and delicacies, definitely adds its contribution to our waist line. Beginning with a conscious start towards a healthy diet, I prepared this carrot and peas gravy, without oil. I must say the gravy tasted as good as when prepared in oil. This felt good, healthy and nutritious too! This recipe would help those who would like to cook a nutrition filled, tasty and oil free dish!


  • 1 cup shelled Green peas
  • 1 large Carrot –diced
  • 1 large Onion

  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp coriander powder
  • ½ tsp pepper powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Water

  • In a mixer or blender put in roughly chopped onions and tomatoes and blend to a coarse paste. Then add the ginger-garlic paste to it and blend once again to smooth paste.
  • In a pressure cooker (when hot) put in the above paste and sauté for few seconds. To this add all the spice powders, salt and stir-fry well.
  • Then add the carrot and peas to this masala and fry well again till the vegetables look well coated with the masala.
