Peas Masala - Vegetarian Gravy with peas for rice, Roti or Naan - restaurant style peas masala recipe

Both my husband and me love peas. However my kids are not a big fan so I seldom do it. However recently my son had change of taste buds. He started eating peas so now I am digging all the peas based recipe. I had handwritten this recipe but I could not remember where I had copied either from cookbook or from TV show. But the uniqueness of the recipe is adding Ghee at the end of the gravy.. It gave a taste same as what you get it restaurant. Do try it out

  1. Great Recipe. Is it okay if i dont add the pasted cashew nuts since i don't like the same??? I will add the yoghurt to the onion + Tomato paste !!! I have peas at home and was wondering how to make something out of them. Thanks a lot.

    1. yes you can omit Cashew just the gravy wouldn't be rich but u can substitute Almond instead of Cashew if u like it..

  2. I have this same recipe in my blog which I posted 2 years back. I made this for dinner today

    1. Just checked ur recipe Jey! yes it is quite similar just that I don't use Milk and yogurt together in any gravy..
