Green Peas Masala

I was late for dinner after a tedious shopping spree and really dint know what to prepare quick. We were damn hungry. So mustered some help from my husband and we prepared green peas masala and chapathis. Real quick took us hardly 20 minutes to finish it from scratch.
Green Peas - 1 cup
Onion - 1
Tomato - 2
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Chili Powder - 2 tsp
Cheese slice - 1
Salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, finely chopped onions and ginger-garlic paste and saute till the onions are golden brown.
Add finely chopped tomatoes and keep stirring till it cooks well and turns mushy. You can either grind this and proceed or prepare the dish just like this.
Add green peas, all the other ingredients and saute for a minute or two. Add enough water and allow it to boil.
When the gravy is thick, garnish with coriander leaves and cheese and serve with hot chapathis.

Bon Appetit!!
