Methi Matter #sikandalouscuisine
A delicious combination of winter vegetables and a beautiful pairing of sweet and bitter . Methi Mattar together taste delicious in this semi curry. I kept the recipe simple and allowed the vegetable flavors to do the talking .
500 Grams Shelled Peas.
1 Measuring Cup Chopped Methi Greens.
1 Large Onion - Minced.
1 Tomato - Puree.
1 Teaspoon Ginger Paste.
1 Teaspoon Garlic Paste.
1 Teaspoon Jeera.
1 Teaspoon Dhania Powder.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi.
Chilies and Salt To Taste.
1/2 Teaspoon Garam Masala.
Winter peas are tender and cook in no time.
Chop methi and salt , after 10 minutes wash and squeeze. I don't do this step.
Heat oil , splutter jeera.
Add onions.When they turn translucent add ginger , garlic and tomatoes .Cook covered on low till oil comes up,sprinkling water if need be.
Now add all spice except for garam masala , and tip in methi greens.After 2 minutes of sautéing add peas and saute covered on low till peas are tender.Maybe 5-6 minutes sprinkling water as needed.When peas are done add water to get desired gravy , I keep this a thick gravy.Adjust flavors . Take off heat adding garam masala .
No fuss , just deliciousness of winter blessings !
