I had celery at home, but cream of celery soup felt very boring to end the week with. Flipping through the book, I found a Spinach and Green Peas recipe (page 95). It felt right, only to replace spinach with celery.
First, fry 2 Tbs grated ginger and 1 Tbs grated garlic in a bit of oil.
Add chopped chili and 1 Tbs Masala along with 1 chopped tomato. Cook for another minute and add spinach.
At this point, reality hit - how will replacing celery for spinach going to work. Too late; by now I have gone too far into this.
Well, I added the celery and let it cook longer than the recipe asks for cooking spinach.
When the celery looked cooked, I added the 1 cup of peas and let it simmer for 5 minutes.
It was a delicious concoction, eaten with brown rice and homemade Raita.
Thank you for the inspiration Bal!
