Serves 2-3

In the pressure pan, heat cooking oil, add ginger, garlic, green chilli and onions and saute till onions become translucent

Add tomatoes too

After the tomatoes become mushy, add soaked cashews

after the sauteed mixture cools down, load into blender jar

and grind to a smooth paste

Now, heat the pressure pan again with oil, and add seasonings

Now, keep the flames on the lowest, add the ground paste, and add chilli, dhania, jeera and garam masala powders along with kasoori methi

add the fresh peas, salt to taste, and cook for 2 whistles

After the pressure releases naturally, this is how it looks
