Peas Masala – Peas Masala Gravy

September 24, 2020 Dals/GraviesGreen Peas  5 comments

Peas Masala is a yummy side dish that goes well with roti and pulao varieties like Jeera Rice or any mild pulao.. Its super creamy and yummy. Mostly when I run out of vegetables I make this dish, as frozen peas is one vegetable that is always available in my freezer. Comes perfectly to the rescue at the right time 🙂 I had posted this recipe long back, now updated with new pics and video. Do check out the quick video below.

Serve it with roti or pulao.


Peas Masala My Magic Pan



  1.  You can use frozen peas or fresh peas.
  2. I haven’t added ginger garlic paste or garam masala because I prefer the coriander & mint leaves flavour to dominate. You can add as per your choice.
  3. You can add fresh cream too instead of milk while grinding badam or cashews.
  4. I do add garam masala somtimes as I have done in the video.
