Before you all wonder what is it that I am talking about ,let me explain- 4 M's refers to MUSHROOMS, MUTTAR, METHI, MALAI and this delightful, delicious dish is made up of precisely these four! ,now I am not a great fan of peas (muttar) and used to avoid them like the plague as a child, but now tastebuds have changed and I do like them little more, not totally but little more...
Yesterday on a trip to the subziwala, I bought peas for the first time ever with Peas Pulao in mind, but somehow changed my mind, and Boy! am I glad that I did, this subzi is a feast even for hardcore non-vegetarians like me, I was completely bowled over by the flavors!

- Mushrooms- 1/2 cup, sliced
- Fresh/Dry methi leaves (fenugreek)- 2 cups

Heat oil , add cumin and grated onion, let brown add tomato puree, cook for 2 minutes.Tip in the rest of the ingredients ,except fresh cream, cook for another 5-10 minutes till mushrooms are done , add cream in the end, garnish with fresh coriander.
Another addition that would taste good in this is fresh paneer(cottage cheese) cubes.
