How to Make Authentic Sindhi Malai Matar | सिंधी मलाई मटर रेसिपी | Sindhi Cuisine | Payal’s Passion

Sindhi Malai Matar Recipe is a super delicious & a super quick recipe, indigenous to the Sindhi Community. Matar is called Green peas in English & Malai is the fresh cream. It is a tradition in Indian households to collect fresh cream from the milk. This fresh cream is a main ingredient to a lot of Indian recipes.

The Sindhi Malai Matar is a lot different than the usual methi malai matar recipe available on the net. It is not only different but has a completely different taste to it. I have seen recipes wherein people add ginger, garlic, onion paste, methi (fenugreek leaves) or cashew paste etc.  Well, that all is good but the dish eventually loses the taste of both the Malai (Fresh Cream) and the Matar (Green Peas). This Sindhi Malai Matar Recipe is made with just three basic spices i.e. salt, red chili powder & turmeric powder. You can prepare this dish in Just 20 to 25 Minutes and without much effort.

Sindhi Malai Matar is a winter special dish and served steaming hot. It is very filling & best served with Hot Roti or Paratha and Jaggery to hit your plate as a condiment.

So let us reveal the secret of this Sindh Cuisine without any further delays.

  1. To a pan add 3 Cups of Peas and about 1.5 cups of water. Make sure the peas are completely immersed in water.

  5. Mix well and cook the cream on medium flame for about 5 minutes & till the cream leaves oil on top.
  6. After 5 minutes of cooking, the cream leaves oil on top. At this point add the boiled peas to the cooked cream.

  8. Turn the flame off after 10 minutes of cooking & dish out in a serving bowl.
  9. Garnish with mint leaves. Sindhi Malai Matar is ready. Serve hot with Roti and a piece of jaggery.
