Green peas masala recipe, creamy matar gravy with full video and step by step instructions.

We usually make Matar paneer or peas masala or peas kurma using green peas. I always wanted to make a tomato-based green peas masala recipe and post it in Jeyashris kitchen. A few visits to the nearby wet market here in Hongkong, I found super fresh green peas. We always use frozen peas for all peas based recipes. Though we get in Singapore during the peas season, I am so lazy to buy it and conveniently buy the frozen peas from supermarkets.

Those who are like me, please buy the fresh peas when they are in season and try this recipe. We used it in pulaos and gravies and the taste was so yum. Just watch your favorite movie or listen to a favorite song and take out the peas from the shell.

The addition of cashew milk paste gives creaminess to the Matar masala. This gives a restaurant-style taste to the peas masala. Check out our complete collection of Side dish for Roti.
