Methi Malai Matar is a popular North Indian dish where Methi/fenugreek leaves combined with Malai/Cream and Matar/fresh Peas in a gravy of onions makes it a rich and delicious combination with Rotis or Naan.
- 250 gms peas boiled and drained
- A big bowl of kasoori methi/dried fenugreek leaves
- 2 glasses of milk
- 1 slice Britannia Cheese single
- 1 tsp pepper powder
- A pinch of chilly powder
- A pinch of sugar
- 3 tbsps oil
To be ground to a paste
- 2 onions
- 1 inch stick cinnamon
- 2 cardamoms
- 1 tsp khus khus
- 10 cashewnuts
- 2 inch piece ginger
- 7 green chillies
Heat 2 tbsps oil and roast the ground paste till it gives its aroma. Add the kasoori methi and roast for a couple of minutes. Add the boiled peas and roast again for two minutes . Add the milk, cheese, pepper, chilly powder , a pinch of sugar and boil well.
Note: Cream can be added, as desired. I usually avoid it as milk too gives it as good a texture as cream and is also light on the stomach.
