Aloo Mattar Subji

The other day I asked Kundan to get some frozen green peas; little did I expect that in the freezer box they would have stored sprouted dried peas, he got it thinking it as fresh green peas. Once he got bottle gourd when I had asked him for radish. He is so familiar with vegetables… 😉 I had used these sprouted peas in a simple aloo mattar subji instead of fresh peas.
