I found this one on My Little Expat Kitchen.and it is fantastic. Sometimes this dish is prepared with tomatoes. However, I prefer it this way.


1 kilo(2 pounds) fresh peas in the pod (or 1 pound frozen peas)

150 ml olive oil

600 grams potatoes cut into 3cm x 3cm cubes

8-10 green onions, thinly sliced (I use the entire onion)

300 ml water

1 cup fresh dill, divided into stems and leaves, finely chopped

salt and pepper


Shell the peas if using fresh. (There's no need to rinse them.)

Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add the green onions and saute them lightly for a minute or so.

Add the chopped dill stems and saute them for 30 seconds.

Add the potatoes and saute for 2-3 minutes, stirring often.

Add the peas and stir until they're well coated with the oil.

Add the salt, pepper, and water.

Let it come to a boil and then turn the heat to low and cover the pan. Simmer for 20-45 minutes (depends on the peas) until the peas are tender.

About five minutes before the peas are ready stir in the rest of the dill(the chopped leaves).

Note: You don't want the majority of the fresh dill to cook. That's why it's added at the end.
