Get a half cup of water and then soak Kasoori methi in it. Heat the oil and then add the dry red chili. Don’t forget to sprinkle the heeng and jeera. Saute it till you see the jeera is crackling. Add sauce and garlic past for more than 3 minutes, but not more than 5 minutes.
Now it’s time to add the coriander powder, red chili powder, and turmeric. Make the heat low now for sauteeing for a half and one minute. Now the water should be removed from the methi and then it should be squeezed. The fenugreek should be added now and cooked for 3 minutes. The water must be added in a little quantity to avoid sticking the masala to the bottom.
Now you will need to add the salt, peas, and almonds. Now saute and then add your tomato puree.
