Methi Malai Matar Recipe

Methi Malai Matar is a popular North Indian dish where Methi/fenugreek leaves combined with Malai/Cream and Matar/fresh Peas in a gravy of onions makes it a rich and delicious combination with Rotis or Naan.

Ingredients :

  • 250 gms peas boiled and drained
  • A big bowl of kasoori methi/dried fenugreek leaves
  • 2 glasses of milk
  • 1 slice Britannia Cheese single
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • A pinch of chilly powder
  • A pinch of sugar
  • Salt
  • 3 tbsps oil

To be ground to a paste

  • 2 onions
  • 1 inch stick cinnamon
  • 2 cardamoms
  • 1 tsp khus khus
  • 10 cashewnuts
  • 2 inch piece ginger
  • 7 green chillies

Method :

Heat 2 tbsps oil and roast the ground paste till it gives its aroma. Add the kasoori methi and roast for a couple of minutes. Add the boiled peas and roast again for two minutes . Add the milk, cheese, pepper, chilly powder , a pinch of sugar and boil well.

Note: Cream can be added, as desired. I usually avoid it as milk too gives it as good a texture as cream and is also light on the stomach.
