 White Peas and Potato Curry

White peas cooked with potatoes is my favorite. You can have it with puffed rice or fried flattened rice flakes as a snack . You can also enjoy it with puries, parathas, rotis and rice. I allways add potatoes inb this curry but you can make it without potatoes also and still it tastes great. This pecipe is very simple and only few ingredients are required.
