A Very easy to make Methi Matar Malai, a Punjabi Sabji with creamy flavor. Fresh Methi (Fenugreek) leaves and Green Matar (Peas) is mixed with blend of spice and cream for gravy. Many recipes calls for sugar in the Ingredeints to cut Methi's bitterness. But here i made it without sugar as i like a little bitter taste of Methi in this...(though i have mentioned sugar measures in my ingredients list but its optional and is totally up to you). Methi Matar Malai Ingredients: 3-4 cups Fresh Chopped methi leaves (Fenugreek Leaves) 1 medium onion sliced 1/3 cup green matar (peas) 1/3 cup Cream 1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter) 1 tbsp olive oil or any other oil 10 cashews soaked in water for 15-20 minutes & finely paste 2 tsp green chilly paste 1 tsp Ginger paste 1 tsp garlic paste 1 tsp mustard seeds Pinch of asafoetida powder 1 tsp red chilly powder 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 1 tsp cumin powder 1 tsp coriander powder 1/2 tsp garam masala powderl Salt to taste 1 -2 tsp sugar (optional - i don't add sugar as i like little bitter taste of methi in sabji) Recipe: In a wok or kadai, heat Ghee (Clarified butter) and oil. Add Mustard seeds, as soon as it splutters add pinch of asafoetida powder and sliced onion with pinch of salt. Saute onions until soft. Now add Fresh and chopped Methi leaves and Green Matar (Green Peas) to it.  Pour about 1/4 cup of water, cover the lid and let Methi and Matar cook on low flame for about 10 minutes or until methi and matar both is cooked. Open the lid, add cashew paste, ginger paste, garlic paste, green chilly paste, Red chilly powder, turmeric powder, Cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and salt to taste. (If using sugar than add at this time). Cook further for few minutes. Now add Cold beaten cream.  Stir & mix well.(Add water if required, a little) Cook for few more minutes and turn the flame off... Garnish it with Cream and serve hot with Naan or Plain Paratha.
