This month we the bloggers of shhh cooking secretly group decided that we would blog Manipuri cuisine. Ashima was my partner for this theme and she suggested that I use Cumin powder and Tomato to make a Manipuri specialty. While Ashima was quick to make Manipuri Aloo Kangmet, I took some time to decide the recipe as I wanted to make a dish which would suit my taste as well as my diet chart. Checking on vegetarian recipes on the web, I chanced upon this Mangal Kangtak on NDTV. I was intrigued by the name. For some strange reason, I kept remembering the movie, Mangal Pandey. Anyway coming back to the recipe. this looked very doable and easy and I was sure people at home would like it.

Mangal Kangtak

Mangal Kangtak

I made some changes in the method of cooking. I have used a pressure cooker to cook the dish. I have used fresh peas here. If you use frozen peas, you need to thaw them before you cook.

Haha!!! Now I cannot think of it as any other name than Mangal Pandey ๐Ÿ˜€ Looks delicious and it is so easy to make! Definitely going to try. Manipuri cuisine was a fun theme to do!

All of us at home love green peas (and who doesn’t). This recipe is a variation that I need to try, pressure cooking the green peas curry. I wonder, won’t the peas get overcooked? In the images on this post they look just perfect, though!

We both have made recipe using green peas but each one is unique. I loved this recipe, the use of fenugreek powder and spring onion. PS – Comparing this with Mangal Pandey comment left me in splits.

Usually when I make fresh pea sabji its either with brinjals or potatoes and pretty simple. I’m glad I’ve found another flavorful sabji using peas. The spring onions must have made this mangal kangtak taste awesome.

Such a simple recipe and the dish looks so delicious. I guess it pairs well with roti. Beautiful picture. The bright colour of the curry is popping up because of black background.
