 What Is Methi Malai Matar Recipe?

Methi malai matar is an absolute winter’s delight. As the name suggests the dish has fresh fenugreek leaves, peas, and cream or malai as its main ingredients. The beauty of methi malai matar is the combination of contrasting flavors and its beautiful texture. Fenugreek leaves give sharpness to it which is balanced with the sweetness of peas and malai or cream. The dish gets its texture from cream. Methi malai matar can be served with butter naan or lacha paratha.

Ingredients for Methi Malai Matar and Substitutes:

Methi: As in fenugreek leaves is obviously one of the most important ingredients for this preparation. Along with the fresh fenugreek leaves, dried ones have also been added i.e. kasuri methi. It gives more flavor to methi malai matar.

Matar: Peas, certainly the fresh ones are the best for this. But you can also make methi malai matar using frozen peas.

Malai: I have used heavy creamy for a smooth and creamier texture. You can use malai instead but the texture of the dish might differ.

Onion, garlic, ginger: These combine to form the base for methi malai matar. The interesting part about this recipe is that no souring agent has been used. methi malai matar

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
