This is a Punjabi side dish which sounds really good. I intend to try it soon.

Loved these tasty peas! The spicing was spot on and the milk gave the dish just the right amount of creaminess. I used frozen peas which worked fine for this. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT8, Chefs gone WILD!

A nice, mildly spiced dish. I did as another reviewer did and added canned tomatoes and used less water (1/2 cup - but it was still lots of liquid). It doesn't need more hotness, but I would definitely recommend increasing the other spices or adding some ground coriander to it.

What I liked best, besides the flavor, is that it counts as a starch AND vegetable dish all in one! I used canned tomatoes so i cut back on the water to 1c. It made just enough sauce. I served the peas with pan fried chicken breasts sprinkled with garam masala. The kids were in heaven ~ we ate it all! Made for Best of 2012 tag.
