Tip of the Day

"Use the water of boiled vegetables for gravy,doing so you get more flavour and you don't lose the nutrients which otherwise drain off with water.."

*Garlic Snap Peas

Guests/friends are visiting your place for lunch/dinner......you have spent a lot of time and effort in preparing a wonderful main course and now you are scratching your head thinking about what side-dish to make,that too in a short span of time,don't worry. Here's a very simple,quick and a tasty recipe which will compliment your main course.

This doesn't mean that you can make this dish only when guests are coming(he....he).Make it anytime,you will love it..

This is one of my favorite side-dish.Enjoy :D

Snap peas are a very good source of vitamin C, vitamin K, manganese, dietary fiber, folate and thiamin (vitamin B1). They are also a good source of vitamin A, phosphorous, vitamin B6, protein, niacin, magnesium, riboflavin (vitamin B2), copper, iron, zinc and potassium.

Garlic Snap Peas

  • Sugar snap peas (Fresh) 3/4th lb
  • Olive Oil 2 tsp
  • Black pepper powder 1 tsp
  • Minced garlic 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Wash the snap peas and remove the tips from both the ends.

  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan or a skillet. Saute the snap peas in oil with salt and pepper powder.

  • Cook for 3-4 mins or till the peas get cooked but are at the same time crispy.(Take care not to overcook the peas,slight brown spots start developing on the pods when they are done)

  • Add minced garlic to the peas and mix well and remove from heat immediately or the garlic may get burnt and taste bitter.

  • Garlic snap peas are now ready.

  • Serve as a side dish.
