Frozen peas lose their taste and flavor from time to time and hence their taste does not fall into this casserole.

I like to use fresh peas to make this casserole or for other green pea dishes.

This casserole is often made in Punjabi houses. I also make it at home regularly and this recipe I learned from my milk.

As a variation, some people also add potatoes to this casserole. After cooking, the rice grains should separate and the pulp should not appear in the peas.

I usually force the green pea casserole to cook, but you can cook the casserole in a pot. If cooking in a vessel, the amount of water should be increased slightly. The details of the recipe and step by step pics are given below.

You can serve green pea casserole with curd or onion tomato raita, onion rings, kachori, papad and pickle.
