I am little bored with preparing Tomato or Onion based gravies to serve with Chapati. Some time back, I tried vegetables with Masala and milk alone. I didn’t like its taste much and so didn’t prepare it again.
When I came across Green Peas in Milk gravy in Tarla Dalal’s website, got very excited and prepared immediately with mixed vegetables and adjusting to my taste. Though this is a milk based gravy, Tomatoes and Onions are used but in small quantities. We liked its taste and decided to prepare this often.
- Mixed Vegetables 1 cup (Peas, Carrot and Beans)
- Onion (small) 1
- Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 tsp
- Chilli Powder ½ tsp
- Coriander Powder ½ tsp
- Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
- Garam Masala 1/8 tsp
- Kasoori Methi ¼ cup
- Milk 1 ¼ cups
- Maida ½ tsp
- Cream 1 tsp
- Cloves 2
- Cumin and Aniseeds 1/8 tsp each
- Butter and Oil
- Tomato (medium) 1
- Onion (small) 1
Cut Tomatoes into four halves. Chop Onion into pieces. Chop Vegetables into medium pieces lengthwise.
- Heat little in a Pan. Add chopped Onions and fry till translucent. Now add chopped Tomatoes and fry till its skin separates. Keep it aside to cool and then grind.
- Pressure cook the Vegetables for one whistle.
- Heat Butter and Oil in a Pan. When hot, add Cloves, Cumin and Aniseeds. When the seeds crackle, add the Ginger-Garlic Paste and chopped Onions.
- When Onions turn slightly brown, add Tomato-Onion Paste. Fry till the Oil separates. Now add the cooked Vegetables, Kasoori Methi and all the Powders.
- Mix well. Fry for a while and then add Maida mixed in 1 ¼ cup of Milk and Salt. Allow to boil.
- When it is almost done, add Garam Masala and Cream. Mix well. Boil for few more minutes and then serve.
Serve with Chapati or any Indian Bread.
