Let's see the Ingredients:

  • 2 Cardamom (optional)
  • 2-3 tbsp - Ghee 
Heat the Ghee(Clarified Butter) and saute green chillies and ginger. Once done add Cashews and fry till they are brown. (I actually completely forgot to do this, so add it in the later part)

In the mixture, the saute chillies and ginger 

Add cashews later 

Smooth Paste 

In the same Pan with left over ghee, saute the mixture for couple of minutes with the constant stir. If it sticks, add salt so that it doesn't get stick to the pan. 

Add washed Methi and Green Peas to the mixture. 

Add all the spices (Turmeric powder, salt, kasuri methi, garam masala) And give it a good mix. Make sure flame is medium. 

Add cream and give it very good mix. Keep it on lower flame and let it boil for few minutes. Switch off the gas once done and serve hot with Parathas or Roti :)
