    What a great recipe. It looks so delicious. As I was reading it - I thought it would be perfect for getting my son to eat peas as he hates them and then I read your comment that that's why you invented this recipe!! I will certainly try making it. The MDH masala also brought back memories and made me smile as years ago - MDH Masala used to be advertised on the telly and my son (when he was a baby) used to laugh whenever he saw the advert!!
