Green Peas Masala Recipe - Restaurant Style(Dhaba Stye)

Green Peas Masala Recipe
Green Peas Masala is a great side dish for chapati,phulka or even pulaos.As I have mentioned earlier, mittu loves peas so I take chances to try different varieties with it. I bookmarked this green peas masala recipe long back and when I browsing through it last week, I had the sudden urge to try this and with no surprise mittu loved it. I modified the recipe a bit to my convenience and it came out still too good.Even with no milk/cream the gravy is creamy and yummy, apt with rotis or even jeera rice.

Restaurant Style Green Peas Masala Recipe

My Notes:

  • You can even add curry leaves while tempering which gives a nice flavour too.
  • Use kashmiri red chilli powder for a dark red color as in restaurants.
  • Channa masala powder gives a great flavour to the gravy.
  • This is medium spicy , adjust chilli powder according to your taste.
  • For the peas or any green vegetable to stay green, after pressure cook release the pressure manually and open it. This way the veggies will stay green while adding in gravies - Got this tip from my cousin and it worked too.

  30. Hi, tried this recipe, it turned out to be very tangy coz of both tomatoes n curd, any suggestions............

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It depends on the sourness of tomatoes and curd...Add little more chilli powder to compensate the sourness and add a pinch of sugar too. Hope this helps!
