Sweet snap peas curry

sweet snap peas 

 Sugar snap peas is  a  vegetable that has a crispy texture and a sweet flavor. They should be served raw or only cooked for a short time for them to retain their crispness. These are also called “sugar peas.” They resemble in shape to the regular indian broad beans except for the sweet flavor.Here i  tried to cook these with sesame seeds powder(nuvvu podi) and it tasted great.


  1. Sweet peas – 3cups
  2. Sesame seeds/Nuvvulu -1cup
  3. Dry red chillies – 4
  4. Salt to taste
  5. Oil – 2tsp

 snap peas and ground sesame seeds powder


  • Wash and cut the sweet snap peas into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • Dry roast sesame seeds and red chillies ,let it cool and grind them into a powder.
  • Heat oil in a pan add the peas and salt & cook until they are soft and crispy.
  • To this add the ground powder,curry leaves mix well and cook for another 5 min and remove from stove.
  • This goes well with plain rice and chapathis.
