Peas-masala-recipe
     I had no idea that peas masala could be so delicious if made at home, until I tried on my own. Before that, I always had tasted in restaurants, as an add on along with other gravies and never liked it that much. This is an easy recipe except the frying part, as it splutters a lot while frying, but I cover and fry the masala and overcome the spills. It goes well with roti or naan , even I eat it with steamed basmati rice or mild pulao 's side dish. I use frozen peas, we can also use fresh green peas and the dried ones for the same recipe.

     I think the addition of roasted & powdered jeera and fenugreek/methi seeds adds on a great flavour to this masala. I love it. Thanks to the SIL who introduced this recipe. I just tweaked the method a bit for my convenience, otherwise no big changes. So here goes the recipe, I am sure you would love it!

Green peas masala recipe

Indian Side dish
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients


Green peas, fresh or frozen or dried* 1 & 1/4 cups
Onion  3 
Tomato  5 
Ginger garlic paste  1 & 1/2 tsp 
Jeera & methi/fenugreek seeds  1/4 tsp each 
Red chilli powder  1 & 1/2 tsp – 2 tsp 
Dhaniya powder  2 tsp

Coriander leaves, chopped  2 tblsp 
Sugar  A pinch 
Salt  as needed 


*Soak over night and 1 cup is enough…

To temper

Oil 2 tblsp
Cinnamon 1 inch piece
Elachi 1
Cloves 2

Method

  1. Golden roast methi and jeera in few drops of oil in a pan. Powder it using hand mortar and pestle or you can simply crush it using a rolling pin. Chop onion and tomato roughly, fry them with a tsp of oil until the the tomatoes turn mushy. Cool and grind.I dint had GG paste, so I added 3 cloves of garlic and a piece of ginger along this frying.
  2. fry onion tomato-jeera
  3. Heat a small pressure cooker/pressure pan with the oil and temper with the items given under ‘to temper’ table. Add the ground onion tomato and fry covered in medium flame until it reduces in volume. Say 4-6 minutes. Add the masala powders and turmeric. Fry till oil separates.
  4. fry,add masalas
  5. Add the peas and add enough water (1 & 1/2 to 2 cups) and add salt and sugar. pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  6. add peas,cook
  7. Open once pressure is released and add the powdered jeera and methi( I had methi powder already) and just give it a boil, garnish with coriander leaves.
  8. add,boil
Notes
  • Better cover the masala while it is frying as it splutters a lot.
Serve hot with butter or cream topped on the masala, with roti or rice/pulavs, yummy!

  53. Hi raji,
    I tried this as a new year menu with baby corn pulav (pulav as per my mom's style & peas masala as per yours). It really came out very very well.My huby appreciated me a lot. Even my MIL, who resisted to taste, because of the aroma of the ginger garlic which smelled in air while cooking, tasted after my huby's and fil's appreciation & she literally enjoyed it greatly. Thank you so much. I really have become a great fan of yours. Keep cooking & keep posting, will try one- by - one all your recipes and post my feedback. My hearty New year wishes to you and your family. My prayers and wishes to give you n your family , a great health, happiness, harmony, wealth & Prosperity in 2012 & years to come. keep up your good work, as its really helping beginners like me.
