  • Once it crackles, add chopped onion and tomato to it and cook for a while.
  • Add cooked white peas and boiled potato (roughly chopped) to it along with all the spices.
  • Mix everything well and cook it covered (with lid) for around 5 minutes till the peas are mushy in texture.
  • Transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish it with chopped onions, tomatoes, coriander leaves as per your taste. Serve it hot.
