  1. Sounds very interesting but I have a few doubts – Are you boiling and mashing the peas before you add them ? you have two pics – one raw and other mashed. The end part – step 8 is a bit unclear. Also does it need so much ghee?

  2. The health benefits of turmeric are indeed great! Thanks for sharing this recipe with us! Will definitely try this recipe!
