Step 1

Grind onion, green chilli, ginger and garlic together in the small chutney jar of a grinder to make medium coarse paste. Grind the chopped tomatoes to make tomato puree. Grind cashew nuts with 2 tablespoons water until smooth paste.

Step 2

Heat oil in a pan/kadai over medium flame. Add crushed onion paste (prepared in step-1) and salt (only for onion paste, it helps to cook onion faster). Sauté it until oil starts to separate or it turns translucent. It will take around 5-7 minutes.

Step 3

Add tomato puree (prepared in step 1) and cook on medium flame until oil starts to separate, for approx. 5-6 minutes.

Step 4

Add red chili powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and salt.

Step 5

Stir and cook for a minute. Add cashew nut paste (prepared in step 1).

Step 6

Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Step 7

Add boiled peas and 1/2 cup water; mix properly and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Step 8

Add seitan strips and cook for 4-5 minutes.

Step 9

Turn off flame and transfer prepared curry to a serving bowl. Matar is ready. Serve it with butter kulcha, cucumber, tomato, onion salad and gajar halwa for a complete meal.
