Usal is made in various forms and has many variations.

As the name suggests, white vatana usal is a recipe that is cooked with white peas.

Here, white peas refers to dried white peas. Safed vatana is available all year around and is a perfect choice when the fresh green peas are not available.

It is an occasionally made dish at my home when I get stuck up on what to make? We can also make ragda (Mumbai street snack) with this white vatanas.

Check out my version of white peas recipe and make it in your kitchen.
