You’ve seen ratatouille. That scene when Anton Ego takes that bite, only to be reminded of him mom’s cooking. Everyone has one. And this is mine.

I've never been a fan of green peas curry, and now I know why!!! I'm pretty sure the goop that was served to me was nothing like this... no aniseed or clove... I'm SO gonna try this out!

Lovely post Cherian! Surprisingly the recipe is quite comparable to the Eastern UP 'Nimona' my mom in law used to make, though in hers the peas are soaked and then ground into paste, fried with onions, spices and tomatoes, and finally cooked with a few pieces of potato! I had not realised that a dish from Lucknow and its environs would so closely match one from Kerala! I will post that recipe soon!

My first try on Cucumbertown - The blend of spices and really well-fried onion made it so deep and tasty. Thanks Jane and Cherian!
