Shelled Fresh Green Peas - 2Cups
Fresh Cream - 1Cup
Milk - 1Cup
Green Chillies - 7 to 9Nos. (Coarsely chopped)
Black Pepper Powder - 1/2tsp
All Purpose Flour - 1 to 2tsp
Tomato - 1No.
Onion - 2No. (Finely chopped)
Oil - 3 to 4tsp
Coriander - for garnishing
Salt to taste

In a small wok/pan heat a Tbsp of ghee and add 1 to 2tsp of all purpose flour, fry this mixture on a medium flame till light golden brown. Dissolve this mixture with 1tbsp of milk. Then keep aside. We add this to the gravy for consistency.

In a thick bottom pan, heat the oil and add in the onions, fry till transparent then add in the Chillies,  pepper powder and tomatoes, saute for a minute. Now add in the peas, cream and the milk, mix thoroughly and simmer for 5 mins.(You can add water too instead of milk, but taste will differ a little.) Then add the all purpose flour and salt, simmer further for 10 mins.

Lastly garnish and serve hot.
