DELICIOUS SNOW PEAS WITH ORANGE


In my child hood days my granny use to cook snow peas with mustard sauce. But snow peas was not my child hood favorite. I very cleverly avoid this vegetable but as I grew up and my interest for healthy food increase, I found this snow peas quiet interesting. Snow peas in mustard sauce is very delicious but I try out little differently and like the taste. Now you tell me whether you like this snow peas recipe or not?

INGREDIENTS:

Snow Peas 4 cups
Red bell pepper 1 sliced
Canola oil 3 tsp
Garlic 1½ tsp finely chopped
Orange 1(only zest freshly grated )
Orange juice 6 tbsp
Salt and pepper according to taste


PROCEDURE:

Choose pods that are bright green, smooth and look juicy. Avoid any that are wrinkled or yellowing. The peas should be very small, and almost completely flat. You might find a few withered petals still clinging to the stem, which also give a clue as to freshness. Use a small, sharp knife to trim off the tops and tails.
Now take a pan and heat oil, keep it in a medium flame. Add garlic and then orange zest stir for few second . Add snow peas and red bell pepper slices stir then add orange juice. Stir for a second . Cover and cook until the snow peas get tender about 4 to 5 minutes. Uncover and cook for another minute until the gravy thickens a little bit. Adjust seasoning with salt and freshly ground pepper. Your delicious snow peas with orange is ready to serve with bread. Have it in lunch or dinner and I hope your kids will also love this orangey veggie dish.

BE HAPPY AND STAY HEALTHY.
