Khoya Matar recipe, Side dish for chapati

Khoya matar recipe with video and step by step pictures, a popular rich gravy made using mawa and peas pairs well with chapati, roti and naan. I had a small portion of khoya with me after making Diwali sweets, i wanted to try a gravy using khoya for a long time. So i tried yesterday the popular Khoya matar, generally paneer will be added to the gravy but i don't have stock of paneer so i skipped it. The gravy was finger licking delicious and creamy and tasted very similar to a Restaurant style Khoya matar.
Generally we get frozen peas here, all through the year. Now this time of the year the fresh peas is in season, so try this rich and creamy Khoya matar recipe and enjoy your meal. If you do not have khoya at home, try this easy Instant home made khoya recipe
We had this Khoya matar with Home made tandoori roti, for which I will share the recipe soon.

Notes:
  1. You can add whole spices like cloves, cardamom and bay leaf in the oil before adding the ground onion tomato gravy.
  2. Cashew nuts can be added while sauting the onions to enhance the richness.
  3. Fresh cream can be added in the last to the gravy.
  4. Instead of low fat milk, you can add full cream milk also. 
  5. Paneer cubes can be added along with matar, to make it Khoya matar paneer .

  1. Hi Jeyasri

    Can we use instant gulab jamun mix instead of Khoya?

    1. Yes you can use for sure. Just sprinkle water and knead it and steam for 10 minutes. You will get instant khoya. You can use it for the gravy.
