Aloo Peas In Cilantro Gravy

Aloo n peas makes a very good combination.Can be used in making side dish,main course,starters and many more.Today I have made my version of Aloo n Peas in making a tasty yummy curry to go with Chapathi.Yesterday I came to know about the event JFI-Jhiva for Cilantro at Cilantro Blog and made this curry to share for that event.
Here comes the recipe..
Grind To Paste:
Fresh Cilantro:1 bunch(chopped)
Green Chillies:Acc to taste
Salt:To Taste
Grated Ginger:1/2 spn
Tomato:1/2(Finely chopped)
For making curry:
Onion:1/2(Finely Chopped)
Tomato:1 big(Finely chopped)
Peas:1.5cups(Boiled..I soaked the peas overnite n then boiled them)
Potato:1(peeled ,diced n boiled)
Cumin Powder:1 spn
Coriander Powder:1 spn
Garam Masala:1/2 spn(Increase r decrease acc to ur taste)
Curd:4-5 spns(beaten)
Oil:3 spns
1.Blend all the ingridents listed under Grind to paste,make it into a smooth paste and put aside.
2.Now Put a pan on flame and add oil,when hot add the chopped onions and fry for 2 mins now add little salt,this helps the onions to cook faster,fry till they turn golden brown,now add the chopped tomato mix well and cover it with a lid.
3.When the tomatoes turn smooth and mashy add 1/2 cup of water and now put in the masala powder like cumin powder,coriander powder,garam masala mix well and cook the spiced mixtured for 2 mins.
4.At this point add the ground cilantro paste stir well and add the beaten curd mix well and cover it with a lid and cook till oil seprates.
5.When you find the oil oozing out add the boiled aloo n peas mix well and check for the seasonings.And adjust if needed.
6.Cover and cook the curry on medium heat for 10 mins so that the cilantro juice is absorbed by aloo n peas.
7.I finally garnished with grated paneer to give the dish a different taste.Serve it hot with Chapathi.
Aloo palak is a very familiar recipe to many of us..This curry(Aloo n Peas in Cilantro Gravy) tastes very gud,the aromatic smell of Cilantro is refreshing.Hope u all love this different taste.
