Methi Muttor Malai

What You Need:

1 Methi or Fenugreek Leaves 2 cups Finely Chopped
2 Green Peas 1 cup
3 Onion 1 big
4 Tomato 5
5 Ginger Garlic Paste 1 tbsp
6 Milk 1/2 cup
7 Cashew Nuts 1/4th cup
8 khus khus 1 tbsp
9 Salt To taste
10 Sugar To taste
11 Garam Masala 1 tsp
12 Turmeric Powder 1 tsp
13 Red Chili Powder 1 tsp
14 Cumin Seeds 1 tsp
15 Oil 2 tbsp
16 Cream 2 tbsp

Steps To Make:

Warm milk and soak cashew nuts and khus khus for half an hour.
Ground to a fine paste.
It might take a little longer than usual to grind khus khus or poppy seeds. After grinding for a certain period, khus khus cracks up and releases milky liquid. The paste should be ground till that point.
Heat water in two separate sauce pans.
In one pan, boil tomatoes till you see the skin separate.
In the other, you boil onion.
Strain water, remove the skin of tomato and grind onion and tomato together  to a fine paste.
In a pan, heat oil. Add cumin seeds and ginger garlic paste. Cook till its raw smell is gone.
Add onion tomato paste. And cook on high for 3-4 minutes.
Add all dry spices, fenugreek leaves and green peas.
Cover and cook till you see oil on the sides of the pan and fenugreek leaves are well cooked.
At this point, add the milk paste, sugar and salt. Add little water if required and boil the gravy for 3-4 minutes or till you reach the desired consistency.
