furthermore, i would like to highlight some of the easy and important tips and suggestions for chura matar recipe. firstly, i have used thick poha for this recipe and i would recommend the same to use it. basically, thick poha would retain its shape and would dissolve when soaked in milk. secondly, i have used frozen green peas and hence does not require the overnight soaking procedure. but if you are planning to use dry green peas, you have to soak it overnight before using it. also, you may cook them for a longer time as compared to frozen ones. finally, the dish has to be served immediately once it is removed from the stove. it tastes better when served warm.
