Green peas masala


  • Soak the cashew in warm water for 10 minutes and grind this along with yogurt into a smooth paste.
  • Chop the onions and tomato roughly. In a pan, add 1 tbsp of oil and add the onions, tomatoes , coriander leaves, green chilli and garlic and saute for a few minutes till it shrinks.
  • Grind the onion tomato mixture into a fine paste.
  • In a pan add oil and add the onion paste and add the cashew yogurt paste. Mix well and saute for few minutes in a low flame.
  • Add the frozen peas, garam masala and kasoori methi.
  • If adding fresh peas, cook this separately and add. I used frozen peas.
  • Add the1/2 cup water to this to get a gravy consistency. Add salt. Let this boil for 5-7 minutes,till the peas gets cooked(if using frozen peas) and to get the masala blended with the gravy.
  • Add the milk to the gravy.
  • Let this come to one boil.
  • Switch off the flame.

  1. You can add a handful of paneer to this gravy while adding the green peas.
