Green peas masala in Punjabi dhaba style
Introduction:This is my second north Indian dish which is also a punjabi dish…it’s green peas masala cooked in punjabi dhaba style.. Many of us like the north indian dishes cooked in dhabas as it has a special taste in it..Because of that, now I am very much interested to make many other dishes in north indian style…When I searched my kitchen, I saw green peas. So I planned the next recipe would be Green peas masala in Punjabi style.
I would request my friends esp. north Indian friends to give their critical comments and correct me if there are any mistakes...
