Green peas masala

  • 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.
  • Green peas masala is ready to serve.
  1. You can add a handful of paneer to this gravy while adding the green peas.

First of all thank you Jeyashri madam for this innovative and good recipe.It helped me a lot. I always used mint leaves for the paste but that day I ran out of mint. So I added blanched spinach in your recipe and it came out very well, that my daughter who hates spinach liked it very much and called out super! Thank you once again.

Looks yummy. But tell me its 2 pod of garlic or 2 cloves of garlic

jeyashri suresh January 5, 2017 - 7:11 am

It's always under a confusion whether pod is a whole bulb of garlic or a a small piece of garlic. I always refer to a small piece of garlic when i refer pod.

Unknown January 27, 2018 - 4:12 pm

Pod consists of all the cloves. I mean many cloves will make one pod.
