  • If you don't have fresh or frozen peas, you can soak dried peas overnight and later use.
  • If you want you can add cooked diced potato or roasted paneer cubes too.
  •  For extra flavor if you want you can use little dhania and jeera powder. I normally use MDH / Everest brand garam masala n chole masala.
