Methi Malai Peas & Potato Curry

This is a curry inspired by the Methi Mushroom curry on Veg Recipes of India.  V hates mushrooms.  The curry looked delicious.  I had some cream readily available and so I substituted it for the yogurt in the recipe. And peas and potato for the mushrooms  :-(   but nevertheless this was tasty too


Ingredients:
Peas - 100 gms
Potato - 1 large - boiled
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Chili powder - 1/2 tsp 
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Cream - 4 tbsp
Methi leaves - 1 bunch - clean and finely chop
Onion - 1 diced 
Tomato - 2 nos - or use 3 tbsp of purée
 Green chilies - 2 nos - paste
Garlic-Ginger - paste - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - whole - use cinammon (1"), cloves (2), cardamom (1-2)
Oil - 1 -2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Heat oil. 
Add the whole garam masala.  Sauté 
Then the diced onions.  Allow to brown slowly. 
Followed by the green chilie - ginger garlic paste.  Sauté for a minute
Now add chopped tomatoes or the purée
Allow the tomatoes to get soft and mushy
Once that is done, add the turmeric, chilie and coriander powder.  
Stir and allow to simmer till the oil separates and the masala comes together 
Add the peas and boiled potato cubes and finely chopped methi leaves
Sauté 
Pour in 1/2 cup water.  Add salt to taste.  Cover and allow to simmer and cook.
Now stir in the cream and serve.

Can be had with roti.  I had it as a side dish with vegetable rice. Whatever was left, I had it plain :-)
