Methi-Mattar Malai

Few days back, I saw this recipe in Lavanya's Cookery Corner . Had a bunch of fresh Methi leaves by then, and prepared it. Rich and creamy side dish for roti's and pulao. Interesting variation to the regular methi dhal & methi roti. :)

Ingredients
Fresh Methi leaves from a small bunch.
Frozen green peas-1/4cup
Onion-1
Cloves-2
Green chillies-2
Coriander powder-1 teaspoon
Almond-5
Milk -11/4cup
Elaichi-1
Oil
Salt

Method
Soak the almonds in hot water for 30 minutes,peel the skin and keep it aside.

Peel the onion,cut into half, pierce the cloves,cook for 7 minutes in boiling water. Take it out and let it cool.
Once the onions are cooled, take out the cloves, grind it along with almonds and green chillies to a fine paste.
Heat oil in a kadai, add the elaichi and the paste. Fry for 6-7 minutes on medium heat.

Now add the cleaned,washed methi leaves, cook for a minute.

Add the peas and coriander power and salt. Cook for 3-4 minutes.

Add the milk, reduce the flame to low.

Switch off the stove when the methi mattar malai boils nicely. (It will take 3-4 minutes)

Serve hot with roti's or pulao's.
Actually I added 10 almonds and the gravy was little thick. Next time I have to reduce the number of almonds to 5! ;)

  11. Aaah! talk about a coincidence! The boy was craving this last night but we didn't have any peas or methi. I guess someone will be visiting the grocery store after work! Thanks for the recipe Mahi!
