Aloo Maatar (Potatoes & Peas Curry)

Ingredients

  • 2-3 spoon Oil
  • 1-2 teaspoon Jeera / Cumin
  • 1-2 teaspoon Rai / Mustard seeds
  • Few Curry Leaves ((optional))
  • 3 Garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 inch Garlic cloves (finely chopped)
  • 1 Small Onion (chopped)
  • 1-2 Tomoato (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon Red chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • 2 Potatoes (cut into pieces)
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas
  • 1 teaspoon Kasoori methi powder
  • Salt (as per taste)
  • Coriander leaves (for garnish)
  • Water (as per requirement)

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker, add cumin, mustard & curry leaves, let it splutter.
  2. Add ginger and garlic, fry till light brown.
  3. Add onion & fry until light brown.
  4. Add tomatoes and all the spices, mix everything well, cook until tomatoes are tender.
  5. Add the potatoes and peas and cook everything for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add water and close the pressure cooker. Cook on high for about 4-5 minutes (I usually switch off the gas just before it starts to whistle).
  7. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Open the pressure cooker and if the curry looks very watery then you can simmer it for some time (without the lid) so that some of the water will evaporate or just mash some potatoes in the curry this will also thicken the curry.
  9. Garnish it with coriander and serve hot with rice or roti....Enjoy 🙂
