My cooking endeavors started when I was in my 11 std. I love north Indian food, be it there rotis, naans or the wide variety of subjis. I was never a rice person, i.e never liked to have the regular Sambar and rice though fried rice, biriyanis and pulaos were always welcome. So the first things that I learnt to make were rotis and few north Indian curries like Chole, Matar paneer etc. And since I am a roti person, I am always on the lookout for easy to make and tasty gravies.
Today’ s recipe is one such, which I saw on TV very recently. It is a very simple dish and requires very few ingredients. This is different from the regular onion tomato based gravy and it goes very well with rotis and flavored rice. Do try it and let me know how you liked it :)
What you’ll need
1. Fresh or Frozen Peas – 1 cup
2. Onion - 1 medium
3. Green chillies – 2 or 3
4. Almonds/Badam – 10
5. Milk – 1 ½ cups
6. Bay Leaf – 1
7. Cumin Seeds – ½ tsp
8. Oil – 2 tsps
9. Salt to taste
10. Coriander leaves for garnish
Slice the onions lengthwise, slit green chillies and keep aside. Soak almonds in hot water for about 10 minutes. Remove the skin and grind them along with about ¼ cup of milk. Boil the green peas.
Heat a Kadai with oil. Add the bay leaf and cumin seeds. After a minute, add the sliced onions and the slit green chillies. Sauté till the onions turn pink. Now add the almond paste and sauté for few more minutes. Now add the boiled peas, salt and the remaining milk. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Garnish with coriander leaves.
Badami Peas Masala is ready. Serve hot with rotis or any flavored rice of your choice.
Increase number of almonds to get richer and thicker gravy.
You could also add other vegetables like Carrots, Beans, potatoes etc.
