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. :)
Fresh Methi leaves from a small bunch.
Frozen green peas-1/4cup
Coriander powder-1 teaspoon
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)
Actually I added 10 almonds and the gravy was little thick. Next time I have to reduce the number of almonds to 5! ;)
