Aloo Matar Recipe / Dry Aloo Mutter Sabzi

Aloo Matar Recipe
Aloo Mutter is a simple North Indian style curry that goes well with both rice and roti.I have already posted a aloo matar gravy version so this one is with no tomatoes a dry sabzi.

I tried this recipe with my favorite blending ingredient curd excluding tomatoes, I added amchur powder and kitchen king masala which is new in my cooking as suggested by my North Indian friend. I served this with Lachha Paratha for mittu and we had it with phulkas. Mittu who is not very fond of dry subzis loved this to the core, yes amchur powder did the magic.

My Notes:

  • Potato takes time to cook so I half cooked it then added it to cook along with peas so that both the veggies are cooked perfectly.
  • If you don't have kitchen king masala then skip it.
  • I used fresh green can use frozen or even try with dried variety.But soak dry peas overnight , then add it.
