Pattani sundal(Tempered dried green peas)Notes:
1.Fresh peas should not be used for this recipe.Dried green peas available in groceries should be used.
2.Serve at once after mixing coconut else the dish will turn soggy.If serving later,mix the vegetable and coconut at the time of serving.
3.I usually do not use ginger for this as the taste will be over powering.
