What makes this recipe so popular is that it has a rich feel about it, but at the same time it is quick and easy to make using the microwave oven!
The gravy that hosts the green peas has the vibrant colour and dynamic flavour of methi leaves, made rich and luscious by the addition of cream.
A paste of cashew, poppy seeds and popular taste-enhancers ginger and onions, gives the gravy its intense taste and also contributes to the mouth-feel.
