Here is another characteristic Punjabi dish, which is loaded with dairy products like cream and ghee. This gives the Malai Mutter a lusciously creamy mouth-feel, which will make you feel really pampered.
Apart from that, you will notice that the Malai Mutter uses only everyday ingredients and spices, so it is quite easy to make. Tomatoes give this green peas subzi a nice tangy taste, while whole spices, powders and pastes give it an intense flavour.
It is the ghee that makes the Malai Mutter really special, so if you are not relishing this subzi immediately after cooking, we suggest you re-heat it before serving so that the ghee melts a little.
While boiling the green peas, add a little soda and salt to enough water, as it will retain the vibrant green colour of the peas and also that it will absorb the salt.
Indeed, this is a homely and satiating treat that you will thoroughly enjoy, when had with a few phulkas , you can also add on Masalawali Toovar Dal and rice to round up your meal.
