I am sharing Green Peas Butter Masala recipe which is one of my personal favourites. This goes great with rotis or steamed basmati rice. The addition of kasoori methi adds a unique flavor to this dish. As with many Indian food, this delicacy also tastes better with time. Here goes the recipe of Green Peas Butter Masala.
