Vegetables are rich sources of vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients. So it is necessary that we make them a part of our daily meal, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. Carrot peas stir fry is a perfect dish that you can have any time of the day by combining it with other staple foods like rice and wheat. You can mix it with plain cooked rice to make carrot rice, make chapathi rolls with this, have it as a side dish with rice and sambar, or even make a sandwich out of this. You can also add other veggies of your choice.

This recipe requires very few ingredients and gets done in a jiffy.


3 carrots chopped
¾ cup peas
1 onion chopped
2 tbsp oil
½ tsp mustard seeds
8 to 10 curry leaves
½ tsp red chilli powder
¼ tsp turmeric powder
½ tsp salt


Boil (or steam) the carrots and peas with ¼ cup water and ¼ tsp salt in a pressure cooker for 5 minutes and keep ready. Now heat oil in a non stick pan, add mustard seeds and allow them to sputter. Then add curry leaves and onions and stir fry till the onions turn golden. Next add red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt. Finally add peas and carrots and mix well. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and serve hot.
