Peas Mutta Fry ~ A Kozhikode Street Food

  
I know the monsoon has started, and time has come to crave for Street Foods. Even though i love street food, served hot and spicy... but a BIG NO NO when it comes to oily foods... Once in a while i do enjoy having oily stuff... There will be a list of items mainly non veg dishes when it comes to Malabar, like Kallumakkai porichathu, parippu vada, pazham pori , ullivada.. and goes on.. Today i am sharing one of the famous street food that we get at Calicut beach...spicy Peas Mutta Fry. A very simple recipe with a very few ingredients. Cooked green peas with scrambled eggs sprinkled with pepper powder...and served hot.

Check out the recipe for Arikadukka, parippu vada, pazham pori
Ingredients
  1. Green Peas / Pachapattani / Mattar - 1 cup (soaked for 6-8 hours)

  4. Onion finely chopped - 2 + 1
  5. Green chilly chopped (round and not fine pieces) - 3
  6. Ginger finely cut lengthwise - 1" piece
  7. Carrot roughly chopped - 2 medium
  8. Tomato finely chopped - 1
  9. Butter / Coconut Oil/Oil - 1 to 2 Tbsp
  10. Salt - as needed
 

Preparation
  • Pressure cook green peas for just one whistle.(Do not cook it mushy). After 1 whistle release the pressure and , open and cook. 
  • Heat oil in a kadai, add 2 onion s chopped, green chilly and ginger. Saute till onions are soft and pink. (a bit of crunchiness should be there for onions).
  • Now add carrot chopped and tomato. Cook it covered.
  • Add the cooked green peas with the water. Mix well.Add salt.
  • Beat 3 eggs. Lower the flame and add the eggs. Mix properly and scramble the eggs.
