For the past few days my hubby is helping me with dinner. He was longing to have green peas masala-restaurant style for quite sometime but never got chance in preparing them. We end up having something else as I have mentioned that my plans are not performing well:( Actually we want to make parotta-home-made ones but there's wasn't enough all-purpose flour at home.I ended up frying some frozen parotta with green peas masala.

Ingredients
Serving Size: 5

For Paste:
1 large red onions chopped
1tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2tsp turmeric powder
2 green chillies
1tbsp tomato paste
1tsp salt

Saute all the ingredient and grind to fine paste once cooled-set aside.

1 cup green peas
1/4cup finely chopped green capsicums
2 tomatoes- pulse to puree
2 tomatoes finely chopped
1/4 cup milk
1/2tsp mustard seeds
1/2tsp cumin seeds
few sprig curry leaves
1tsp chillie powder
chopped coriander leaves
1tbsp ghee

Preparation Methods:
Heat a skillet on medium pan and sputter mustard ,cumin and curry leaves. Add the grind paste and tomato puree. Saute till the oil starts to separate. Add the chopped tomatoes and green capsicums.Add the chillie powder and milk-bring to boil. Finally add the green peas- adjust the level of salt. Once the gravy starts to thicken add the chopped coriander and transfer to serving platter.
