Baby Style Methi Mattar Malai

I’ve been thinking of developing Indian style gravy subzi’s (curries) for T to get him familiarised with the flavours. So this is the first of hopefully many to come, baby style Methi (fenugreek) Mattar Malai.

methiIngredients:

  • 1 Cup green peas boiled and coarsely mashed
  • 1 Cup chopped methi
  • 1 Tbsp ghee
  • Pinch of cumin powder
  • 1 Small pod of grated garlic (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup fresh cream
  • 1 Cup milk
  • Salt to taste

Preparation:

  • Warm the ghee in a wok and add the cumin powder
  • Add the garlic and cook until soft
  • Add in the Methi and sauté till its cooked
  • Once cooked, add the boiled mashed peas
  • Pour in the fresh cream and milk and simmer on low, careful not to boil for long since the cream and milk can split
  • Add salt to taste

Serve with bread/chapatti or as is.

Also, if you want to give it more body you could add in some cooked and broken brown rice.final
