curry is a very nutritious curry which I named after it's ingredients i.e. Palak, Potato and green Peas. This curry turns very tasty and is totally based out of a successful experiment which I conducted in my kitchen.
Since Feb when I had health issues, I got a little bit health conscious. Since then I mostly cook dishes which are packed with nutrition. Palak is a great anti-oxidant, the benefits of which can be found on google. Adding tomato and a different combination of masalas makes this dish really yummy.

2 medium sized onions
1/2 cup green peas
