Green Peas Spread is an interesting way to feed your picky eater this seasonal vegetable. This recipe is inspired by my own Peas Pesto Recipe which I had posted an year back and many of you loved it. So infact when I made this Green Peas Spread, first I took it to my aerobics class and made my workout partners taste it. Offcourse back at home had my inlaws approve it and that's when I was sure to upload this interesting Green Peas Spread.
What's more good about it that it can be used as a pasta sauce too (don't add lemon then) or even a dip with any bite size starters for your parties. This is a sure shot hit and offcourse you would have all the praise and while you know you are making people eat healthy. Use it as a roti/paratha spread with some paneer pieces and your kids would ask for more.Now I am sure you want to try out your hands on the recipe and here you go...
