Easy curries featuring green peas are among some of my favorite sides to serve along with other Indian dishes. Simple enough to make to go along with a busy weeknight meal, yet elegant enough to be part of any meal asking for some spice, no matter how fancy or humble, this flavorful side with a creamy tomato and coconut gravy is especially good scooped over some steamy white basmati rice. The main offering was chickpeas, mango and spinach in a tomato coconut gravy. Though the gravies had some of the same essential flavors and seasoning, each dish was quite unique and well-suited to the blank rice canvas that accompanied the meal. If you have the time, consider serving up some savory Indian flat breads too.
Take care not to overcook the peas so they retain flavor and result in that "pop in your mouth" sensation that I find so enjoyable.
