Indian Spiced Peas are cooked with onions and red bell peppers and Indian spices. 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.
Peas being my favorite frozen vegetable, 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.
