Nimona Recipe

Nimona is a green peas based dish from the state of Uttar Pradesh. Peas are ground and cooked with a few spices to make matar ka nimona. Traditionally, nimona has a soupy consistency. It is a very popular dish of Uttar Pradesh and is prepared in households across the state. However, I have taken a slightly different take on this classic. In this nimona recipe, peas have not been blended completely instead the same have been mashed to a coarse consistency. The nimona has been flavored with spices, onion, garlic, etc. Further potatoes have also been used to make this U.P. ka nimona. This nimona recipe gives a coarse and spicy yet flavorsome nimona. It can be served with chapatti or rice.

Nimona Recipe –Ingredients:

Peas: Fresh peas work the best for Nimona. Not only fresh. It is also important to use tender peas.

Onion Tomatoes: The very basic gravy using chopped onions and pureed tomatoes form the base for this nimona recipe.

Ginger, garlic, and chilies: These ingredients are used to spice up the nimona. These add a lot of flavor to it.

Spices: A few whole spices along with the basic powdered spices have been used in the nimona recipe.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
