Here we use much of the greens like coriander leaves, mint leaves and green chillies to make the gravy look green in colour.

Also I limited the quantities of other ingredients such as turmeric powder and red chilli powder which can change the colour of the recipe.  Green Peas are widely available during winters. If in unseason you wish to prepare this recipe then don't worry frozen green peas are readily available through out the year in almost all the grocery stores.
