I have tasted this Methi malai matar in my friend’s place and I loved it. Methi has so much of medicinal value and methi with malai is really delicious to eat. This is a very easy and simple dish.

  • Ginger garlic paste – 1 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Red chilli powder – 1 tsp
  • Garam masala – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Dry Mango powder – 1 tsp
  • Oil – 3 tbsp

Method of Preparation:

  1. Chop the methi leaves and soak them in salt water for 10 minutes so that the bitterness will be removed.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds followed by the chopped onions.
  3. Fry them till they become translucent and add the ginger garlic paste.
  4. Sautee them for 2 minutes and add the methi leaves.
  5. Fry them for 7 minutes and add the red chilli powder followed by dry mango powder and garam masala.
  6. Fry for 2 minutes and then add the green peas.
  7. Now add little water and salt.
  8. Then add the fresh cream after 5 minutes.
  9. Let it boil for another 5 minutes and remove from the heat.
  10. Serve hot with chappathi


  • Check for the salt because if we soak methi leaves in water it will have some salt already.
