Fried Peas

Posted by Srivalli | Tuesday, July 20, 2010 | , , , , | 8 comments »

Deep fried items are so tasty to much during noon time with a cup of coffee or tea. When you make it at home, it tempts you to grab some while you watch your favorite channel or movie.

This one is quite simple but delicious. The store bought ones are bright in color due to  the coloring agent added. Even without that, it looks bright and tasty. Spice it with lemon pepper, chili powder and hing powder, it is simply crunchy.

    i always visit your blog, and i must say its such a refreshing change from the others, with the variety that you offer. I have a question: how long can these fried peas be stored?

    Thanks for all your comments.

    Rashmi with its taste it will get over quickly no doubt. But I have never stored more than a week so far. It all depends how crispy it is. Since it is soaked in water, you need to be careful with its crispness. Hope it helps. Thanks for visiting. Viji
