A great snack, quickly prepared, is pan fried edamame. You can use peas or young broad beans as well. I like to do this with shelled peas and beans, but you can also make it with peas, edamame and very very young broad beans in their pods. With edamame, simply the beans suck them out of the shell between your teeth after cooking. With unshelled peas and broad beans, the whole pod can be eaten.

Are you perhaps after Broad Bean recipes? Try Pan Fried Broad Beans with Tomatoes and Thyme, and Pan Fried Broad Beans with Lime, Chilli and Salt.

Tawa Peas | Pan Fried Peas, Young Broad Beans or Edamame

Take a pan or kadhai and heat some ghee or oil until hot. Add the edamame, peas or young broad beans, and stir over the heat. Add enough salt for it to be a little salty. It might take more than you imagine, but this is a snack, so taste and add until you are happy with the flavour.

Add chilli flakes or chilli powder to taste.

Continue to stir fry till hot and the first touches of colour appear on the peas from the heat.

Remove to a bowl and serve as a snack.

recipe notes and alternatives
I use a home-made powder made chilli powder made by grinding chillies and dried curry leaves. I love this mix and it goes well with the peas. But use what you have.
