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 amount of green chilies as per taste. When my kids were young I used to add whole green chilies so it was easier to sepatrate out after the cooking. Now I add chopeed green chilies.
  3. You can also add a chopped tomato in gobhi matar aloo preparation for a change.
  4. You can also add a quarter teaspoon of methidana in seasoning. Methidana helps in digestion of gobhi.
