Author Notes

I love the sweetness on the peas and I love when they are in season during spring time. This is one of my favorite recipes to make. The heat of the curry offsets the sweetness on the peas. (During winter time I like to use frozen peas to make this recipe) - adamnsvetcooking —adamnsvetcooking

Test Kitchen Notes

These peas are a very nice combo of warm spices and fresh, bright herbs all on a background of tender, sweet peas. The dish balances the ginger and curry with the mint and cilantro nicely. The recipe is quick, easy, and tasty. I was quite happy to curl up with a bowl of rice topped with these peas. - biffbourgeois —Stephanie Bourgeois
