I make my aloo mattar in a very simple yet delicious way. It is lightly flavoured with mild spices and cooked with less oil. I dont like to overpower my vegetables with too many spices as i feel vegetables have so much of flavour on their own. I have done a step by step video tutorial on this for all my avid video watchers! Here is the simple recipe
1 big potato
1 cup of fresh or frozen green peas
2 tomatoes
3-4 green chillies
3-4 curry leaves
a small piece of ginger
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
1/4 teaspoon each of Nitu Didi cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and red chilli powder
2 crushed cardamoms
coriander leaves chopped
salt to taste
Heat the oil in a pressure cooker or ordinary saucepan. When heated add the cardamoms, curry leaves and chopped ginger and sautee for a few seconds. Add the chopped tomatoes, green chillies and coriander leaves and cook till tomatoes soften, add salt. Add the spices and then the chopped potatoes and peas. Add a cup of water or a little more and put the whistle on the pressure cooker for 1 whistle. If not using a pressure cooker just cook till the peas and potatoes are done.
Simple and yet tasty and nourshing!!
