  3. Stir in the green chillies, ginger, onion and curry leaves and saute until it becomes soft and tender. To this add the green peas, stir in the salt and pour 4 cups of water and allow it to come to a boil.

  4. As the water is boiling gradually add the rava/sooji, continuously stirring the water mixture in one hand so the lumps don't form.

  5. Keep stirring the mixture now until all the ingredients are well combined, the mixture will also begin to thicken.

  6. Once it thickens, reduce the heat, cover the pan and cook for a couple of minutes. Finally garnish with fresh grated coconut and coriander leaves and serve hot.
