When i think of green peas recipe i prefer dried green peas, because here in Chennai or even in other region we get green peas with added artificial green color which is not good for health.
I can even say that i have phobia towards these chemical colors in food. Always i try my level best to get an attractive and appealing color in food by natural method.
Green peas has high nutritional value and low in fat. This tiny peas are loaded with high level of micro nutrients, proteins and fiber. And i recently studied that an experiment of scientific study in mexico city revealed that two milligram of peas daily will prevent stomach cancer.
