Indian Spiced Peas
A delicious and easy side dish using frozen peas and spices. Indian Spiced Peas take about 10 minutes that have so much flavor. They are healthy, vegan and taste like a delicious curry.
There’s no easier (or healthier) way to add a lot of flavor to dishes than the use of spices for a very flavorful side dish.
I actually make my own Indian spice blend to have on hand to add to vegetable for roasting like my Indian spiced acorn squash.
Frozen peas are so versatile because you can prepare them all year round. I like to take them to the next level by adding healthy ingredients, spices and herbs. This is a great way to change up your usual vegetable dish and stay on track with healthy eating.
You could also add any frozen vegetables you like to these peas like, carrots or corn. I like to add red pepper.
These peas were part of a full Indian meal of Chicken Tikka Masala, Indian Dal and Easy Homemade Naan Bread. See picture above.
The next time spring comes around, take advantage of the fresh, seasonal peas and make this dish.

I was looking for a quick dish to go along with my daughter’s Soy Curl Tikki Masala (we eat plant based) and stumbled on your Indian spiced peas. It was the perfect accompaniment to the dish and so delicious and colorful that I will be making it frequently. Thank you.
I’m so happy you found my recipe and this is pretty much how I came about making the recipe 🙂
I always keep frozen Vegetables on hand. I heard on a TV cooking show that one can of green beans costs about a dollar, and if you buy fresh or frozen green beans, you can get enough for one dollar to fill 6 cans. So frozen vegetable vegetables are economical also.
This is good information, thank you for sharing.
Yummy!! This looks so good! You have an amazing website
This curry looks great! So nice to have frozen veggies in the freezer for quick and easy meal.
Red Peppers are not on the ingredient list, do I just add “to taste?”
Hi James, thank you for pointing that out. They were a last minute (and tasty) addition. I’ll add them to the recipe now.
These look lovely and something I wouldn’t usually think to make. I love anything with cumin in it.
