Method
  1. In medium heat add ½ tsp of oil and sauté onion and ginger- garlic paste till onion is translucent. Add tomato and walnut, cook till tomatoes are cooked. Switch off and let it come to room temperature. Grind it into a fine paste without adding water
  2. In the same pan (preferably wide pan as mixture might spill out if its flat) low- medium heat add 1 tsp of butter and add the ground paste and cook for 3- 5 minutes
  3. Add the spice powders, salt and cook for 2 - 3 I used frozen peas so I defrosted it for 40 seconds. Add 1 cup of water and cook for 5 minutes
  4. Add evaporated milk and peas; cook for 3-5 minutes in low flame
  5. Add kasuri methi and switch off. serve hot with naan/ paratha/variety rice
Notes
1. If you are using dry peas cook it before adding to the gravy
2. Almonds, pecans, cashew or any other nuts can be used for richness
3. Onion - tomato can be boiled instead of sauting
4. Same quanity of freah cream/heavy cream can be used instead of evaporated milk
5. ½ cup of whole / 2 % milk can also used and cooked in low flame to avoid curdling
Coconut milk and coconut oil can used instead of evaporated milk and butter for vegan version
