This was a high calorie dish but it tasted heavenly. I served it with hot rotis and jeera rice.
Here's my version of Methi Malai Matar.
1 onion, diced,
1 inch ginger,
3-4 garlic pods, (optional)
2 green chillies,
Masala - 2
1 green cardamom,
1 black cardamon,
1-2 small sticks of cinnamon,
1tsp black pepper corns,
1.) Grind the ingredients in Masala 1 and Masala 2 separately and set aside.
2.) Heat butter in a wok and add the cumin seeds. Once they become golden brown, add the ground Masala 1.
3.) Once the masala turns golden brown, add the chopped methi and stir well. Add the sugar and add the salt as per taste. Cover and allow it to cook half way.
4.) Add the green peas and stir well. Cover and simmer until the peas are cooked half way.
5.) Add the ingredients of Masala 2 and mix well. Keep stirring and add a little water to adjust the consistency.
6.) Remove from the heat and stir in the cream. Sprinkle the kasuri meethi and serve hot.
