Some Tips/Suggestions:

  1. I have used frozen peas, which are mostly half boiled. If you are using fresh green peas, add them with other vegetables.
  2. Increase the amout of green chilies as per taste. When my kids were babies I used to add whole green chilies so it was easier to sepatrate out after the cooking.
  3. You can also add a chopped tomato in gobhi matar aloo preparation for a change.
