Key Note:

  • If you using fresh green peas, then pressure cook them along with mushrooms. I used frozen ones, so just dipped them in warm water for 10 minutes.
  • In absence of pressure cooker, you can boil it normal pan, ensuring that the peas and mushroom don’t feel very raw.
  • It tastes best when served with either Butter naan or Lacha Paratha.
  • Do not over boil mushrooms and peas otherwise they will be mushy.
