This is one of a delicious recipe which does not need introduction.I have adapted this recipe from a cook book and did some alterations according to my family taste.Today I  made it with dried peas,but prefer to make it with fresh green peas.

Add the cooked peas and paneer,boil it for couple of minutes. Finally add the kasoori methi and let it boil for a minute. Garnish it with coriander leaves.
Transfer it to a serving bowl and serve it with naan,roti or jeera rice.

  • Canned tomato puree can be used which gives a very nice color to this recipe.
  • Using tomato ketchup is optional, it gives a sweet and sourness to the recipe.
  • Bay leaf  and cumin seeds can be used for seasoning.
  • Fresh cream can be added for extra rich taste.
