I like to use frozen peas and carrots if possible. You can use fresh carrots as well, however rinse and chop them super fine, the size of the peas.

Rinse and silt the serrano peppers, keeping them intact.
Rinse and chop the cilantro and set it aside.
In a large, heavy-bottom skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add in cumin seeds, asafoetida, and when the cumin seeds splutter add in serrano peppers and ginger garlic paste and stir.
In about 30 seconds, add in the frozen peas and carrots and stir well. Further add in ground turmeric, red chili powder, salt, ground coriander and mix well.
Add in water and cover. Cook it covered for about 8 minutes on medium heat. Moreover, keep checking intermittently and stir occasionally. Finally, once the peas and carrots and soft and the water is evaporated, top off with cilantro and garam masala. Transfer to a serving dish and serve with roti or rice.
