This mild vegetarian dish, made from green gram, fresh peas, cashews and carrot, is often served with biryani. It is also delicious on its own with steamed rice.


  • 800 g (1 lb 12 oz) unshelled peas or 300


If using fresh peas, remove the peas from their pods and set aside. Drain the soaked green gram, then rinse and drain again. Put the green gram in a saucepan with 1.5 litres (52 fl oz/6 cups)
