Spicy Peas curry (vatana Usal)served with sev and Pav/ Bread,works perfect for breakfast!

Spicy curry lovers favorite and it is Vatana Usal (a spicy peas curry) , a wonderful breakfast recipe for all who love to try some spicy gravy which has variety of beans/peas along with some distinctive spices,served with sev/ganthiya and eaten with bread,Yumm!

This is HOT favorite among most Indians,specially all those who love spicy Maharashtrian flavors.
If you decide to make it less spicy then even kids can enjoy this and it is very healthy as we can include variety of beans/peas in this recipe,so that kids can have them!

Usually ,in restaurants we get this usal made of moth beans and white peas but since I didn't have moth beans at home, so instead I used white peas,green dry peas and some quantity of masoor.
Whatever combination of peas you use to make this curry the final outcome is superb and a good way to consume variety of beans.

I have a lot of craze for the Maharshtrian influenced recipes,which are very spicy and flavorful,although my family prefers less spice in food and more of sweeter food (not exactly sweet but very mild in spices). It takes me sometime to convince them to try few of my favorite recipes which are more towards the spicy category.

I usually love making breakfast interesting and have shared a lot of interesting breakfast recipes on my blog.

I will list a few recipes here for you to check:

  • Adjust spice level as per your tolerance.
  • If you cannot find the misal masala powder then no problem try using malvani masala or even any brand of garam masala combined with coriander powder.
  • Kanda lasun masala gives a nice aroma to any maharashtrian gravy,so try if you can find it or else skip but taste might vary.
